Help survey the Metolius River with ODFW and USFS

As part of the salmon and steelhead reintroduction, we are looking for volunteers to stock chinook fry in Metolius, Whychus and Crooked Rivers. This stocking is part of the reintroduction of chinook salmon above Pelton/Round Butte Dams.

ODFW & PGE releases chinook fry into Metolius, Whychus/Alder Springs, Crooked and Deschutes canyons. We need volunteers to stock fish with buckets and/or backpacks. Some stocking is from the road with short walks to the river, while some sites require hikes ranging from 2 -4 miles round trip.  Weight of bags ranges from 25lbs to 40lbs. A bag of water and a few thousand fish can fit in an overnight/large backpack.

We will have trail maps and the release locations.

 Where: Metolius and tributaries, Whychus, Crooked, Deschutes River

Contacts: Terry Shrader

Jen Luke

We’ll contact volunteers with exact times and more details.

March 19 and 20: Stocking Metolius and tributaries.  Most of the stocking requires hauling bags of fry in coolers (in vehicles) to site and stocking fish with buckets and waders, However, there will opportunities to do some short hike-ins to Abbot Creek and Lake Creek.

March 21: Crooked River ranch hike ins (pretty strenuous). Backpacking bags of water/fry to rivers. We’ll hike into sites in the Crooked River canyon, have lunch (provided by ODFW), and then hike fry to sites in the Deschutes River Canyon in the afternoon. We’ll probably meet 10 a.m. and be done by 3.  It will be a full but fun day stocking fish in some really neat areas.

March 22: Whychus Creek stocking at Sisters (carrying buckets of fry to the river) and Alder Springs hike in (pretty strenuous).

March 23: Crooked River and Ochoco Creek. Follow stocking truck and carrying buckets to multiple sites along the creek and river.
