COEUR d’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Lake Pend Oreille anglers will be allowed to keep up to six kokanee they catch for the first time since 1999. The restored, though limited, fishery for kokanee is one of the new fishing rules approved by the Idaho Fish and Game Commission that take effect Jan. 1.

The Bonner County Bee reports lake trout removal efforts and an improving kokanee population have made it possible to bring back what was once a commercial fishery for the small, landlocked salmon. The new rules will be effective for three years instead of two. The commission adopted that change to minimize the confusion associated with frequently changing rules.
