Section 7. Abstract


The role of the Sherman Creek Hatchery is to {1} establish a kokanee broodstock: {2} create and enhance the kokanee fishery within Lake Roosevelt and {3} assist in rainbow trout rearing for net pens on Lake Roosevelt and enhance the rainbow trout recreational fishery. The hatchery is one of two resident fish facilities constructed to provide partial mitigation for the loss of anadromous fish habitat due to the construction of Grand Coulee Dam in 1941. The BPA, Spokane Tribe of Indians, Colville Confederated Tribes, Upper Columbia United Tribes Fisheries Research Center, and WDFW work conjunctively towards the fishery enhancement on Lake Roosevelt and Banks Lake. These members form the Lake Roosevelt Hatchery Coordination Team that provides program objectives, direction and oversight for the program at the Sherman Creek and Spokane Tribal hatcheries.

Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

CBFWA: Resident Fish Review Comments Recommendation:
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Presentation: This is a resident fish substitution program. The hatchery was built in 1992 by BPA, is 100% devoted to mitigation and works cooperatively with the Spokane Hatchery (9104600) and the Colville Hatchery (8503800). The goal is to enhance recreational and subsistence fisheries in Lake Roosevelt. The collective management (through the Lake Roosevelt Hatchery Coordination Team) is unique and annual production goals are agreed to by the participants (STOI, CCT, WDFW). Lake Roosevelt is a very big lake. The hatchery residence needs an upgrade.


On the new residence, can we pay for this with money left over rather than earmarking it? Can you roll over FY 98 money if there is some left over? Answer: We may need more buildings added to site, the mobile home is not working well. Timing may also be a problem (i.e. using the engineering staff without knowing if money is available). We would like to build this in 1999.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes: Suggest that sponsor omit costs of $150,000 for the purchase of the house for now -pending the availability of funds. This should be discussed during the budgeting process.

Programmatic Criteria: Yes. Purchase the residence with FY 98 unexpended dollars, reduce the FY 99 project request accordingly.

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Lake Roosevelt Hatchery Proposals - Inadequate as a set
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
This project is not well justified in the context of other work in the basin. The proposal lacks adequate detail and substance. The proposal is for operation and maintenance, and the goals and successes of the project for which operation and maintenance are provided need to be given for the proposal to be evaluated.
