Grant for fish apartments to help steelhead in Asotin Creek

December 19, 2018by ncdea

WASHINGTON, Palouse CD — The Palouse Conservation District hopes a recently received grant will help bring more steelhead back to a local creek.

The conservation district, based in Pullman, was awarded about $42,000 from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office’s Salmon Recovery Board. That money will go toward a project to make a section of Steptoe Creek near Colton more habitable for steelhead that are part of the Asotin Creek population.

“The structures we are putting in are fish apartments for resting and rearing juveniles,” said Brad Johnson, watershed manager for the Palouse Conservation District.
