Last week, Tacoma Power employees recovered 14 winter-run steelhead adults during five days of operations at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery separator.

During the past week, Tacoma Power employees released three winter-run steelhead adults into the Tilton River at Gust Backstrom Park in Morton.

Tacoma Power also released one winter-run steelhead adult into Lake Scanewa near Randle.

Tacoma Power would like to thank Lonnie Goble and the other Packwood area residents that put the time and effort into getting the Packwood fish release site rebuilt.
