Bridge repair near C.J. Strike Reservoir

Here's some information that sportsmen interested in C.J. Strike Dam should know. The bridge below the dam is going to be closed for rennovations through July 31, 2014. Please consider alternate routes.

C.J. Strike Dam is a popular location for fishing and this closed bridge is near several popular Fish and Game access points. This location is along the Snake River upstream from Grandview, Idaho. 

Learn more about the closure in this Mountain Home News article about the closure and from Idaho Power.

Study on the suitability for walleye introduction in CJ Strike?

I have been on an online fishing forum and we have been talking about the introduction of walleye into CJ Strike Reservoir. Has any research gone into this? Wondering about the concerns of threats to native fish and the spreading of walleye to undesired tributaries of the snake. Basically I'm curious if there are any fisheries biologists that have looked into this and what they have concluded.
