      1000's Of Salmon To Be Released Into Sakakawea

      Thousands Of Salmon Will Be Released Into Lake Sakakawea

      By: Jim Olson

      Over four-hundred thousand fish are swimming at the Garrison Dam National Fish Hatchery.

      (LAUREN KALBERER/KX NEWS)

      Those fish are chinook salmon and they are preparing to move into Lake Sakakawea.

      Alexus Arthur is live in Minot to tell us more.

      The salmon grow to four or five inches when they are ready to be released into the lake.

      When they are released, they will spend the next couple of years traveling downstream on the Missouri River.

      Once the salmon are ready to spawn they will travel upstream and return to Lake Sakakawea where they imprinted.

      Typically, male return after a year and female come back after two or three years, but once they spawn they will pass away.

      Then the cycle of life continues.

      The hatchery will collect the eggs, create new salmon, and release them the next year.

      "In this case, this year and actually the last couple of years, the chinook population in Sakakawea have been phenomenal and so we have a great population of bred stock there which means we have lots of eggs." said Rob Holm.

      Chinook salmon enjoy the cold water and can stay comfortable to about 50 degrees.

      The four hundred thousand salmon will be released this May into the Lake Sakakawea side

      I'm guessing poor old Jim Olson isn't much of a fisherman.

      I wonder if when they swim into the dam and up the hydros if they significantly reverse the generation of electricity?

      Wish they would sterilize and tag a hundred and throw em in Devils lake. I think they would grow like crazy in that water.

      I think I've contributed enough to the state and G&F that there should be at least 17 stocked in the Casselton Res. Just sayin'....

      Would they find deep enough water in the summer to stay cold enough?

      It's the only way they would ever stock them so I threw it in there, Never raised Salmon but trout and they thrived and grew faster than ever in warm water, Our mid afternoon water temps were right at the threshold point where they were supposed to quit growing but they didn't, They grew faster. The key was that they cooled way down at night and gradually warmed up by late afternoon. I'm thinking temps at 50' in Devils lake isn't too far off from the water temps at Sakakawea . I could be wrong but I just have a gut feeling Salmon would thrive in DL.
