Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

Construct and operate 20 kokanee salmon net pens (25,000 fish/pen) is directly called for in the NPPC September 13, 1995 FWP Section 10.8b.4 for rearing of kokanee salmon in Lake Roosevelt. The Sherman Creek Hatchery will construct, operate, and maintain these kokanee net pens as part of the annual hatchery operations and maintenance (9104700). The net pens will be supplied with fish from the Spokane Tribal hatchery (9104600). The existing hatchery facilities operating on Lake Roosevelt do not have the capicity or adequet water supply to produce the number of kokanee yearlings (post-smolts) as called for in the biological objectives (NPPC 95-4, 1995) for enhancement of the resident fisheries in Lake Roosevelt. Sherman Creek Hatchery’s (SCH) primary objective is the restoration and enhancement of the recreational and subsistence fishery in Lake Roosevelt and Banks Lake. This facility began operations in 1992 as one of two kokanee salmon / rainbow trout facilities provided to partially mitigate for the loss of anadromous fish in Northeastern Washington due to the construction of Grand Coulee Dam. Sherman Creek Hatchery was approved by the Northwest Power Planning Council as a measure in the Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program, Section 10.8b, 10.8B.2, (1987, 1995). The role of the Sherman Creek Hatchery in this program is to; {a} provide for kokanee imprinting and egg collection; {b} enhance the resident fishery within Lake Roosevelt; and {c} rear rainbow trout for net pen stocking. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Spokane Tribe of Indians and the Colville Confederated Tribe form an interagency technical coordination team which sets goals and objectives for both Sherman Creek and the Spokane Tribal Hatchery and serves to coordinate enhancement efforts on Lake Roosevelt and Banks Lake. Monitoring and evaluation for this project is by the Lake Roosevelt Monitoring / Data Collection Program (9404300).
