(The Colville Tribal Resident Fish Hatchery and Rufus Woods Creel and Supplementation staff released 9,668 tripoid rainbow trout into Lake Rufus Woods on Thursday, March 26, averaging two pounds each. These fish can be identified by the absence of the adipose fin. Approximately 25 percent of these fish were implanted with a grey floy tag. Anglers that retain tagged fish are encouraged to call CTFW at 509.634.2110 and provide tag number, date, location, size of fish etc. or go on-line to www.cctfwfishtags.com)

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.
