Colville meeting set Aug. 8 to discuss Black Lake

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will discuss a proposed rehabilitation of Black Lake in Stevens County at a public meeting August 8 in Colville.

The meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church meeting hall, 320 N. Maple St. in Colville.

Black Lake, a 70-acre water about 16 miles east and north of Colville, has a shiner population that is competing with rainbow trout. Lake rehabilitation involves treatment of the water with the natural chemical rotenone to kill fish. Rotenone is non-persistent in the environment and is not toxic to humans at the levels used to control fish. After treatment, lakes are re-stocked with hatchery trout to restore sport fishing.
