River flows and lake levels

Fish Report for February 1, 2016

Last week Tacoma Power recovered 37 coho adults, three jacks, 54 winter run steelhead and two cutthroat trout during five days of operations at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery separator.

During the past week Tacoma Power employees released 29 coho adults, one jack, 29 winter-run steelhead adults and two cutthroat trout into the Tilton River at Gust Backstrom Park in Morton.  They also released six coho adults, two coho jacks and seven winter-run steelhead into Lake Scanewa at Cowlitz Falls Dam. 

River flows at Mayfield Dam are approximately 10,600 cubic feet per second on Monday, February 1. Water visibility is two feet. River flows could change at any time so boaters and anglers should remain alert for this possibility.
