Section 7. Abstract


Both the 1994 Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program and the ISG report, Return to the River, call for the restoring salmonid habitat and access to habitat. The species that lost the largest proportion of habitat in the Columbia Basin is sockeye salmon. Presently, only two of over 25 lakes that may have produced sockeye salmon host significant runs and runs returning to those two lakes (Lake Wenatchee and Osoyoos Lake) have recently been in steep decline. Supplementation programs, involving raising juvenile sockeye salmon in net pens in both lakes, have had little success in reversing this trend. The Osoyoos Lake program has been particularly problematic due to a lack of suitable sites to put the net pens. We propose to change the Osoyoos Lake program to take the first step toward creating a sockeye salmon run in Palmer Lake. This project will take the juveniles destined for Osoyoos Lake and place them in a net pen in Palmer Lake. The parr will be marked and released into Palmer Lake. The program’s success will be measured by whether the parr survive and outmigrate Palmer Lake as smolt, and whether adults from this program return to the Columbia River. Juveniles will be monitored in Palmer Lake and in the Similkameen River. Adult returns will be monitored at Bonneville and Wells dams, as well as by spawning ground surveys in the Okanogan and Similkameen Basins.
