Fishing season is here! It's great just to get outdoors and enjoy a relaxing fishing trip. But wouldn't it be great to catch fish AND get paid! Well you can! Tuesday, May 1, marks the beginning of this year’s Northern Pikeminnow Sport Reward Fishery in the Columbia and Snake rivers. State fish and wildlife biologists have specially tagged and released up to 1,000 or more northern pikeminnow into the Columbia and Snake rivers, each worth $500.

The program also pays registered anglers $5 to $8 per fish, nine inches or longer. So you can fish, help save salmon and steelhead AND make a little cash! So, click here for more details and get ready to hit the river!
