Agreed, common theme seems to be the colder weather months . Seems males will darken up and get all beautiful and look like redbands. I've caught many fish out of hog canyon and 4th of July during winter that look just like all these darker fish. Beautiful rainbows irregardless

What is the point without fish passage at the dam?
They are trying to do what was done in the great lakes. I.e. establish Roosevelt as home base for the salmon, hence no need to establish some way around the dams.  As mentioned earlier this would probably require a huge hatchery program dedicated to Lake Roosevelt .  Correct me if I'm wrong, because I've also heard talk of trucking them around the dams  and just reestablishing the Roosevelt tributaries as final spawning grounds.

Down stream passage is a problem that would have to be addressed.

I believe downriver passage would be through the turbines correct? But maybe thats still an issue at coulee??

I hope they run these same nets on the mid and lower Columbia. Walleye and bass don't belong so get them out. Eat them all.
Such double standards. Probably complained when they closed buoy 10 to protect certain runs of salmon, Or say its perfectly fine to keep a big female walleye because its in the regs, but again complain when tully's are kept because it eats up the quota. Give me a break

What do they do with all the fish they catch?

I'm just not sure the netting operation is accomplishing what they want. I think walleyes are like coyotes, don't seem to be able to get rid of them so just work around them. They plant 750000 triploids a year in roosevelt,, seems to me thay have to plant more than 4000 Chinook to get them established. When I questioned the netters at the launch they were a little evasive but didn't seem overly optimistic about how much good they were doing.  It'd be nice to have big Chinook in the lake, but the walleye fishing is extremely popular  and there are fewer opportunities to fish for them in the state than there are for salmon

Exactly, also I've always wondered why the triploids don't grow bigger in roosevelt? Ive never really seen a Rufus woods type 10+ pound football come out of roosevelt. Am I wrong?

I think its the endless supply of pellets that they feed the fish in the pens. I catch trout miles from the pens that are stuffed full of pellets. The walleye are also fat in there. They seem to always be puking up crawdads and i think the craws are also eating the pellets that settle into the rocks making them a high protien meal.

Dang right it's fine to keep big hen walleye but not because it's in the regs. It's fine because they're an invasive species. I purposefully target big hen walleye to eat right before they spawn in order to have the biggest impact on the population. Do whatever you want with walleye in the potholes, but get them out of our rivers.

Again , such double standards. You want only the native species in the river and kill all the invasive....but you/they are killing the native species---squawfish/northern pikie minnow--   Give me a break..it's not about invasive vs. native for you...it's protect MY favorite fish.  AND..They will NEVER get rid of ALL the smallmouth and walleye from the Columbia. I can't wait until someone catches a northern pike in the lower Columbia....it's going to happen regardless of all the netting.

I don't see the double standard. Native species can still become overpopulated and need management such as whitetails in urban environments, or kangaroos in aus. I love walleye and I'll be sad to see them go, but by nephew likes zebras and if someone brought them and they took over you'd be here trying to save them. :chuckle:

Pike are part of the excuse to use indiscriminate walls of death that should not be allowed anywhere.
Still no evidence that Pike are capable of spawning anywhere in western Washington or the lower Columbia.

We make a trill ok or two every winter and spring. Love the fishery as it gets the kids on fish and we get our time.  Redband with my son 9 or so years ago. We used to catch several kokes also from the bank each trip. Im more concerned about the bigger northern pike getting more established.
fear no fish!!

Some clarification in todays Spokane paper.

If you haven't watched the video presentation by WDFW on the ongoing 20 year study of population status by year class etc of the Roosevelt walleyes you should look it up. Lots of interesting data. I started fishing for walleyes in Roosevelt when I got out of the Army on 1969. I've seen it all develop.

"WDFW Communications Manager Staci Lehman contacted me this week to clarify the netting that will occur this October and November in Lake Roosevelt. She told me this netting is WDFWs annual Fall Walleye Index Netting survey (FWIN), not something newly implemented, and has been conducted in Lake Roosevelt for the past 20 years using 150 nets in about 100 feet of water. Immediately following the FWIN survey this year will be the annual northern pike monitoring that is conducted reservoir-wide in late October or early November every year. For that monitoring, 300 nets are set in shallow water with 200 of those nets in the upper reservoir where most of the northern pike are concentrated and the other 100 in the mid- to lower reservoir. Except for a small-scale localized effort by the Colville Tribes near the mouth of the Sanpoil River to address predation on out-migrating salmon and trout, neither the FWIN survey nor the northern pike monitoring survey are considered suppression efforts."
