PUD turbine project may be delayed OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – Crews at Box Canyon Dam have been gearing up for the fi rst new turbine that is to be installed there over the next year. But the unit is behind schedule at the manufacturer, and the project may have to be delayed a year.

SPOKANE – Northern pike are becoming a successful sport fishery in the Pend Oreille River, and tournaments are being held a couple times a year. Most recently, Keith Hoffman of Gone Fishin’ Lure Co. of Spokane, held a tournament April 18-19 at Box Canyon Dam. He said it was a partial success, but the weather wasn’t as warm as he had hoped. Hoffman said he held the tournament not to make a profit, but to raise money to put into research of northern pike on the river. “Until the research is done, we won’t have regulations implemented on pike in the river,”

accounts. The historic departure of Verizon Communications’ residential service from Newport, Priest River, Priest Lake and Sandpoint – as well as 10 other states – will transition ownership to Connecticut-based Frontier Communications. In 1997, the federal government created the Universal Service Fund to tax urban service

“Until the research is done, we won’t have regulations implemented on pike in the river.” Keith Hoffman Gone Fishin’ Lure Co.

he said. “I would like to see a trophy fishery preserved for many years to come. If managed properly, a trophy fishery for pike as well as the other highly targeted fish in the river is possible.” The tournament consisted of 15 anglers and six people serving as judges, two of which were biologists from the Kalispel Tribe of Indians.

Several fish were hooked but only two were landed. The water had warmed enough to put the fish in the spawn, Hoffman said, making them nearly impossible to catch, especially using artificial lures only. The winning fish went to Ryan Quaintance. It measured 25 inches. The other fish caught was even smaller at 22 inches, by Hoffman’s grandfather Tom McManus. Hoffman said he plans to hold the tournament again next year, at a later date to avoid spawning. He said this was a learning year, and he’ll take what he learned and use it next year. Fishing on the Pend Oreille River is open year-round, but a license is required from the state you are fishing in.

The district asked voters for a $1,499,813 supplemental levy to help support district functions such as resources officers, extra curricular activities, field trips and library operations.
