Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Produce 500,000+ wild stock redband rainbow for resident fish management program in the Upper Columbia Subbasin. a. Completion of NEPA Complete planning and feasibility, engineering and design, and other permits including Washington State Hydraulics Permit, WDOE water discharge permit, Shorelines, etc. Construct a permanent trapping and spawning facility at Phalon Lk.
2. Provide wild stock fish for tributaries in need of supplementation due to weak populations and as a result of habitat improvements. Provide wild stock fish for use in the Lake Roosevelt fishery. a. Procure 500,000+ wild redband rainbow eggs annually for waters within the Upper Columbia Subbasin Rear 500,000+ wild rainbow fingerlings annually. This production is intended to replace existing production, not additional production Collect wild replace

Section 7. Abstract


Beginning in the mid-1980s hatchery stock rainbow trout were supplied to the then growing Roosevelt Lake net pen project. Returns to the creel in the fishery were acceptable as a result. Subsequently reservoir operations were altered and serious entrainment of most resident fish species began occurring at Grand Coulee dam. This entrainment resulted in the loss of significant numbers of resident fish from the reservoir. In 1996, as a result of hydroacoustic monitoring of all three turbines at Grand Coulee by the Colville Confederated Tribe, an estimated 816,236 fish were entrained based on monitoring at 58% of the turbine intakes. The objective of this proposal is to replace hatchery rainbow trout released into upper Columbia subbasin waters with an indigenous stock. The stock to be used is resident to tributaries of the upper Columbia. It is riverine in nature and does not migrate downstream under increased flow conditions that occur annually above Grand Coulee dam. This approach is intended to maximize the retention of trout in tributaries and FDR Lake. The specific need of this proposal under Section 10.8B.26 is to plan, engineer, construct, and operate and maintain improvements to the Departments’ Phalon Lake wild rainbow trout trapping facility and rear 500,000+ wild rainbow trout annually. These improvements will allow the continuation and expansion of the Kettle River wild rainbow stocking program into other upper Columbia River Basin waters.
