TROUT SEASON OPENS TODAY-FISHERMEN IN GLEE
FISHERMEN in Washington are in high glee. The season for which they have been making preparations the last six weeks, opened today, and scouts report that the general outlook for bass and trout fishing Is the best in years. Regardless of the opinion of some authorities that "there is no closed season on trout in the state of Washington" game fish have been fairly well protected the closed season, Novem he, 1 to April 30, and there is every reason to believe that the provis ions of the law have been general ly observed.

Many line catches were made there last season and even belter are expected. WHERE TO FISH "Liberty lake should be good for bass, perch and trout. It was stocked several years ago with trout and a few were caught last year, so it should be much better. The perch were small, but. the bass are of good size and are plentiful. Williams lake, north of Spokane, also gives promise of good bass fishing. Moats have been provided so the difficulty which existed in f<> r years will lie eliminated this Beason, "Pish Trap lake, west of here, is reported as being good lor bass this year. Many large catches of bass and large perch were taken We have the appliance which will furnish the hot water in the shortest, easiest, most economical and cleanest way.

Silver lake is also good for bass and sun fish, with which it was etoeked some time ago. Of the other lakes which Spokane fisherman frequent there is Coeur d'Alene, Hayden Fornan, Chatcolet and Sucker all of which are good bass grounds. "Kor trout Hayden lake, Newman lake, Liberty lake, the Little Spo kane, Chamokane creek. Deep creek and Headman creek are prob ably the best grounds near Spo kane. The north fork of the Coeur d'Alene river promises to be very Rood this year and easy of access for the trout seekers. The best way to reach the trout haunts on the Coeur d'Alene river in northern Idaho is by way of Prltchard creek on the Swift Water. There is ac commodation for anglers.. Cabins have been built on the little North Fork, where horses or canoes can be secured lor penetrating deep into the Swift Water and securing larger fish. This is practically vir gian ground." AL WISEMAN TALKS "Of the Idaho lakes, which are good for trout, there are Sullivan, Priest and Pend Oreille, where large ohar are also often caught. Sullivan lake is probably one of the best of these and is easily reached by tho Sioux line by way of Fend Oreille." Al Wiseman, the well known rod man, prefers Spirit and Hayden lakes for early fishing. "Spirit lake is good for trout and Hayden for trout and bass at the present time," said Mr. Wiseman yesterday. "There is also good angling at the mouth of the littel Spokane, and in fact all the way up that stream, early in the season. Deep crook, Hi miles from Spokane, is also good at this time of the year. Tired and Hot There is nothing so bracing and stimulating as a hot bath followed by a cool plunge I "You may expect, also, good fish ing on the Spokane river itself, now that the season has opened, for j though it was not so good there last year when the season opened. It must he remembered that the season is opening a month later ttiis year. Taken altogether, I think this will be as good a year for the anglers as we have had." Although there have been many changes in the law "relating to the taking of food fish" during the last ten years, the 1909 state law save to the white man the same privileges that the Indians had un der the old law. The word "per son" was substituted for the word "Indian" in the law making the law relating to the taking of salmon so that one provision reads: "Nothing in this act or in any other act shall prevent any person residing In this state from taking salmon or any other fisli by any means at any time for consumption by himself and family." To a direct question whether this provision covers the closed season on trout Attorney General Hell has replied at length, saying in part: BELL ON THE LAW "During the last ten years there have been several amendments to the law governing the salmon iv- ROOSEVELT WELCOME WILL ECHO FROM ROCK RIBBED (New York Bureau United Press Associations.)

During the same session the legislature issued special laws protecting trout, bass, pike, pickerel and other game fish, thus clearly recogniz ing distinction between game fish covered by special enactment and other food fish covered by the act ol ISS9. It would therefore seem too clear for argument that the special laws governing hook and line fishing for various species of game fish could not be impliedly repealed by this general act re gulating the taking of salmon." The first section of the law re lating to game fish reads as fol lows: "It shall be unlawful for any per son in the state of Washington in any of the counties lying east of the western boundary of the counties of Okanogan, Chelan, Kittitas, Yak catch or kill in any of the lakes catch of kill in any of the lakes or streams therein, or have in their possession after the same has been unlawfully taken, any trout, bass, perch, pickerel or pike, between the first day of November and the first day of May of the following year."
