Cowlitz Fish Report

Cowlitz River fisheries public meeting set for September 9 in Morton

New! River flows and lake levels

Fish Report for July 21, 2014

 Last week Tacoma Power recovered 595 summer-run steelhead, 132 spring Chinook adults, 78 jacks, 138 mini-jacks and one cutthroat trout during five days of operations at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery separator. 

During the past week Tacoma Power employees released 58 spring Chinook adults and 77 jacks into the Cispus River above the mouth of Yellow Jacket Creek, they released 134 spring Chinook mini-jacks into Riffe Lake at Mossyrock Park, and they recycled 200 summer-run steelhead and one sockeye salmon downstream to the Interstate-5 boat launch.

River flows at Mayfield Dam are approximately 2, 970 cubic feet per second on Monday, July 14. Water visibility is twelve feet. River flows could change at any time so boaters and anglers should remain alert for this possibility.
