SPRAGUE – Want to go fishing at Sprague Lake or on the Snake River but don’t have a license?
Well, this weekend you’re in luck as “Free Fishing Weekend” opens state waters for anglers who don’t have a license.
But if you don’t have a license, be careful what you catch this Saturday and Sunday, June 10-11.
Game wardens will be on the lookout for fishermen catching salmon, sturgeon and steelhead in Eastern Washington waters without a license.
That’s because state bureaucrats in Olympia have changed the rules relating to Free Fishing Weekend.
Any species that requires a catch...
