1 OKANOGAN RIVER SPRING & SUMMER/FALL CHINOOK Hatchery & Genetics Management Plans

2 What Are They? Comprehensive Production & Harvest Programs for Spring Chinook and Summer/Fall Chinook in the Okanogan Subbasin and in the Columbia River from Chief Joseph Dam Downstream to the Okanogan River

3 WHY? No Mitigation for Grand Coulee Dam – 60+ yrs No Mitigation for Grand Coulee Dam – 60+ yrs No Anadromous Fish Mitigation for Chief Joseph Dam, 4 COE Lower Columbia River Dams No Anadromous Fish Mitigation for Chief Joseph Dam, 4 COE Lower Columbia River Dams Inadequate Mitigation for 5 PUD Dams Inadequate Mitigation for 5 PUD Dams Inequity:630 Fish Ave. Annual Colville Harvest Inequity:630 Fish Ave. Annual Colville Harvest No Colville Spring Chinook Fisheries No Colville Spring Chinook Fisheries Abrogation of Federal Trust Responsibilities Abrogation of Federal Trust Responsibilities

4 Summer/Fall ChinookPrograms Integrated Recovery Program: Increase Abundance, Distribution, Diversity of Natural-Origin Summer/Fall Chinook Integrated Recovery Program: Increase Abundance, Distribution, Diversity of Natural-Origin Summer/Fall Chinook Disperse Hatchery Production of Summer Chinook to Increase Natural Production Disperse Hatchery Production of Summer Chinook to Increase Natural Production Realign and Increase Hatchery Production of Summer Chinook Realign and Increase Hatchery Production of Summer Chinook Initiate Local Okanogan Summer Chinook Broodstock Initiate Local Okanogan Summer Chinook Broodstock Initiate Propagation of Later-Arriving Chinook Initiate Propagation of Later-Arriving Chinook Mark all Hatchery-Origin Chinook Mark all Hatchery-Origin Chinook
