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).
(The Colville Tribe released about 48,000 tripoid rainbow trout into Lake Rufus Woods this year.)
UCUT Tribes (Coeur d'Alene, Kalispel, Spokane Tribe of Indians, and Kootenai Tribe of Idaho) assist the Colville Tribal fishermen with harvesting efforts of Chinook and sockeye salmon. UCUT Tribes take home totes of salmon to distribute to tribal members.
