Staff from the Colville Tribes’ trout hatchery began stocking Rufus Woods Lake in March 2021 with triploid rainbow trout that averaged 5.4 pounds each and can be identified by the absence of an adipose fin.  A total of 1,550 fish were stocked in the lake during the first weeks of March. An additional stocking event into Rufus Woods Lake at the end of March added approximately 18,700 adipose clipped triploid rainbow trout that average 1.5 pounds each.


We encourage the membership to take advantage of this opportunity the hatchery is providing.  All anglers are encouraged to provide information associated with their catch (e.g., date, location, boat or shore fishing, and approximate size) to creel personnel or by calling the Colville Tribes’ Fish and Wildlife Department at (509) 634.2110.
