The Colville Tribes Resident Fish Hatchery staff released over 12,000 triploid rainbow trout averaging almost 2 pounds each into Rufus Woods Lake between March 19, and March 26, 2019. All released fish can be identified by the absence of an adipose fin. Approximately 2,000 were also implanted with a plastic anchor tag. Anglers that catch tagged fish are encouraged to provide tag number and information related to the catch (i.e. date, location, length, and approximate size) by logging into www.cctfwfishtags.com/report-a-tag. This information assists CCT Biologists in managing annual fish releases into Rufus Woods Lake.
