Sugsaw hatchery update! Last week the fisheries team released the last batch of Coho. These Coho were taken as brood stock from the Pachena system and were successfully released back under the Rousseau bridge. There are healthy, wild Coho that resident in the Pachena, Rousseau and tributary systems.
*COHO Fun Fact* – based on genetics and habitat some Coho decide to resident in river for their first 1.5 years!
A BIG thank you to Cliff Nookemus Jr. for his fisheries expertise, hard work, and dedication to this project. It was a successful release of all the Sugsaw hatchery salmon this spring.
