Public meeting May 29 to discuss the state of Cowlitz River fisheries and hatchery

State Fish and Wildlife is hosting a public meeting to discuss the Cowlitz River fisheries and hatchery programs 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 29 at Centralia College in Washington Hall Room 103, at Washington Ave. and Pear Street.

State Fish and Wildlife and Tacoma Power officials will discuss the Fisheries and Hatchery Management Plan for the Cowlitz River and recommendations for next years’ hatchery production.

In November 2011, the group outlined their plan to maximize wild fish production in the Cowlitz River while still providing a chance to sport fish.

The plan sets goals for building wild salmon and steelhead in the Cowlitz, while maintaining hatchery production and other programs.
