Tacoma Power employees transported 2,556 coho adults and 344 jacks to the upper Cowlitz River at the Day Use Park in Lake Scanewa during the week.   During the week 110 coho adults and 25 jacks were released into the upper Cowlitz River at the Skate Creek Bridge in Packwood, Washington, and 666 coho adults and 67 jacks were released into the Cispus River above the mouth of Yellowjacket Creek. 

A total of 1,447 coho adults, 148 coho jacks and four cutthroat trout were released into the Tilton River at Gust Backstrom Park during the week.    

Tacoma employees recycled 53 summer-run steelhead, 128 fall chinook adults and two chinook jacks and 36 cutthroat trout downstream to the Blue Creek boat launch during the week.  In addition, they recycled 349 fall chinook adults, 15 jacks, 49 steelhead and 32 cutthroat trout downstream to the Massey Bar boat launch during the week. 

River flows at Mayfield Dam are approximately 4,800 cubic feet per second on Monday, September 27.  Water visibility is over 11 feet.   Flows may change at any time so boaters and anglers should remain alert for this possibility.
