Fifty-nine young anglers participated in the June 9 event. We enjoyed beautiful weather and good fishing at the freshly-stocked lake. Thank you to the Army Corps of Engineers, US Forest Service and all the volunteers that made this year's kids day a success! View Photos
"State and tribal co-managers yesterday agreed on a package of salmon fisheries that meets conservation goals for wild salmon populations and provides fishing opportunities on healthy stocks."
In January, the Washington Salmon Recovery Funding Board released its biennial report on the status of recovery of wild salmon stocks in Washington Watersheds. A copy of the report can be viewed and/or downloaded at http://www.stateofsalmon.wa.gov/. This report includes a new interactive feature that allows readers to check the status of salmon recovery in a particular watershed.
Tri-State Steelheaders participates in the Columbia River Recreational Fisheries Advisory Group as an advocate for recreational salmon and sturgeon fisheries above Bonneville Dam, with particular emphasis on spring and fall Chinook fisheries on the Washington portion of the Snake River. We are the only Advisory Group member east of White Salmon in either state.
Letters and background information:
At Tri-State Steelheaders, our mission is to restore sustainable populations of native salmonids by enhancing habitat, providing public education and promoting recreational angling for future generations.
We envision a future where the Blue Mountains region has healthy river systems with sustainable populations of native salmon, steelhead and bull trout that provide robust recreational fishing opportunities for current and future generations.
