  • Yakamas reintroduce salmon in Yakima River Basin headwaters

    Tucquala Lake, Washington (AP)

    As staff members of the Yakama Nation Fisheries Program emptied nets full of young coho salmon into Tucquala Lake, they undid effects of over a century of dams barring migratory fish from the Yakima River Basin’s headwaters.

    The tribal-sponsored experiment was returning around 300,000 coho salmon during late June in an effort to re-establish self-sustaining fish runs in the basin’s upper reaches, starting in the waters above Lake Cle Elum in the central Cascades.
