Coho Partnership

About 1.14 million Coho salmon are nearing the end of their time at the Willard National Fish Hatchery. On February 12, we will begin to transfer these salmon to the Yakama Nation, we will transfer about 265,000 salmon per shipment. They will travel to north central Washington to acclimation ponds in various locations. All of the transfers will be completed by April 10, 2019. Ultimately these Coho will be released into the Wenatchee and Methow River drainages.
