Winthrop National Fish Hatchery works with partners to achieve goals we couldn’t do as well alone. Our staff works closely with the Washington Dept of Fish and Wildlife and Douglas County Public Utility District in collecting adult steelhead for broodstock, and in the monitoring and evaluation of the hatchery steelhead programs in the Methow Sub-basin. We raise coho salmon for the Yakama Nation to help them with their vision of restoring coho populations. The Nation also rehabilitates steelhead kelts at our hatchery. These are just a few examples of partnerships that benefit wildlife and people.
