Column: Colville Tribes cited non-Indians for fishing violations

"Colville Confederated Tribes fish and wildlife officers recently cited several Lake Roosevelt anglers for fishing without a tribal fishing license on land managed by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

The anglers aren’t happy about the $100 tickets or having their fishing gear confiscated on Geezer Beach next to Grand Coulee Dam. They thought they were on the side of the law.

The tribal officers said they were under reservation rules."
