Win a prize in Lake Sammamish kokanee fry count contest

May 7, 2013

By Contributor

The Bellevue-Issaquah Chapter of Trout Unlimited is offering a contest to see who can correctly predict the number of kokanee fry counted in the 2013 migration of fry from Ebright and Lewis creeks into Lake Sammamish.

The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Coho Cafe in Issaquah.

During the past seven years, chapter volunteers have been counting the number of fry that migrate downstream from the spawning areas into Lake Sammamish to help in the kokanee recovery efforts for Lake Sammamish.

Here are some hints and details regarding past fry counts: The greatest yearly number of fry counted on Lewis Creek was 4,656 in 2010; the greatest yearly number of fry counted on Ebright Creek was 3,368 in 2012. The total number of fry counted in both Ebright and Lewis creeks this year through April 6 is 4,879, which is approximately one-third through the counting season.

Predict the final combined total fry count for Ebright and Lewis creeks. Email your prediction, along with your name and email address, to

Only one entry is allowed per name and email address.

The winner will be the predicted number closest to the combined total count for both creeks, and will be notified by email two weeks after the final trapping session for both creeks.

Entries must be received by midnight May 10. In case of a tie, the prize will be divided equally among the winners.
