Cowlitz Fish Report

Cowlitz Fisheries Informational Meeting - April 24

 

Fish Report for April 21, 2014

Last week Tacoma Power recovered 836 winter-run steelhead, 80 spring Chinook adults, eight jacks and one cutthroat trout during five days of operations at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery separator. 
During the past week Tacoma Power employees released 15 steelhead  and one cutthroat trout into the Tilton River at Gust Backstrom Park in Morton, and they released 105 steelhead, 41 spring Chinook adults and seven jacks  into Lake Scanewa above Cowlitz Falls Dam.

River flows at Mayfield Dam are approximately 8,880 cubic feet per second on Monday, April 21. Water visibility is nine feet. River flows could change at any time so boaters and anglers should remain alert for this possibility.
