Mission:

The Fish & Wildlife Department’s overall goal is to maintain and protect viable populations of native and desired non-native species of fish and wildlife, and their supporting habitats, while providing sufficient numbers to meet the cultural, subsistence, recreational and economic needs of the tribal membership. 




 














(CTFW staff work long hours at fish weir to reach program goals. The fish weir is a tool that is used to capture adult salmon (broodstock) for CJH and to manage the ratio of hatchery fish and wild fish on the spawning grounds).


 

Chief Joseph Hatchery is a state-of-the art facility that was built to increase spring, summer, and fall Chinook salmon in the Okanogan and Columbia Rivers. The hatchery will produce up to 2.9 million Chinook fry annually and will provide salmon for tribal ceremonies, subsistence needs for tribal members, and increase recreational fishing opportunities for all. The $50 million hatchery was completed in May of 2013 and is located in Bridgeport, Washington next to Chief Joseph Dam.  For more information on Chief Joseph Hatchery, go to: www.colvilletribes.com/cjhp.php

(The Colville Tribe released about 48,000 tripoid rainbow trout into Lake Rufus Woods this year.)
