FWP Salmon Spawn Effort on Fort Peck Reservoir a Success

Fri Nov 10 14:24:17 MST 2017

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks fisheries crews began collecting adult Chinook salmon the first week of October this year in hopes of collecting a large number of eggs. Throughout October, FWP staff collected an estimated 791,000 eggs from nearly 200 female salmon. Although this was down from the record year of 1.4 million in 2016, this was the second most eggs collected since the program began. Successfully hatched eggs will be raised to fingerlings and released back into the reservoir in 2018.
