Trout Unlimited casts for kokanee at Salmon Days

September 28, 2010

By Staff

The Trout Unlimited Bellevue-Issaquah Chapter will have a booth at the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery during Salmon Days.

The booth will display educational information about the chapter’s long-standing goal to conserve and restore runs of Issaquah’s heritage freshwater salmon, the kokanee.

Young kokanee will be displayed in an aquarium. Volunteers will be there to discuss the life history of kokanee, fry trapping for census information, habitat restoration, youth conservation education and sonic fish tagging with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Salmon Days kokanee T-shirts will be given for donations or new membership registrations in local organizations involved in saving Lake Sammamish kokanee.
