Cowlitz Fish Report

Cowlitz Fisheries Informational Meeting - April 24

 

Fish Report for April 14, 2014

Last week Tacoma Power recovered 747 winter-run steelhead and seven spring Chinook salmon during five days of operations at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery separator. 
During the past week Tacoma Power employees released 29 steelhead into the Tilton River at Gust Backstrom Park in Morton, and they released one steelhead  into Lake Scanewa above Cowlitz Falls Dam.

River flows at Mayfield Dam are approximately 8,980 cubic feet per second on Monday, April 14. Water visibility is ten feet. River flows could change at any time so boaters and anglers should remain alert for this possibility.
