Quinault Nation to reopen Lake QuinaultApril 15, 2014 @ 9:20 pm
TAHOLAH, Wash. (AP) -- The president of the Quinault Indian Nation says the tribe has decided to reopen Lake Quinault to nontribal use under new regulations.
The tribe closed the Olympic Peninsula lake last June, citing pollution problems, unsafe activities, invasive species issues and diminished fish runs.
President Fawn Sharp said Tuesday the tribe will try to both safeguard the lake and share it with others.
The tribe's business committee on Monday passed fishing, boating and use regulations for 2014.
The lake is located within the Quinault Indian Reservation and is owned up to the high water mark by the tribe.
