Note: These counts are returns into Leavenworth NFH. Many salmon that return to Icicle Creek are caught in the sport and tribal fishery and a few adults remain in the river. The hatchery needs to spawn 1,000 adults, 500 females and 500 males to get eggs to produce 1.2 million juvenile fish that will be released about 20 months after the eggs are taken. Salmon that enter the hatchery not needed for spawning are excessed to regional tribes for use in ceremonies and other beneficial uses as well as to some groups to help fund conservation and education programs.
