Funding for this project became available in June of 2002. An initial draft Okanogan River steelhead HGMP was completed late 2002. Between 2002 and late 2003, that HGMP underwent multiple reviews and revisions. A final HGMP is expected to be completed in late 2003. Planning associated with development of broodstock collection facilities in Omak Creek was completed in 2003. Delays in initial funding, delays in development of the HGMP, and ultimately the reprioritization of the Cassimer facilities to raise additional sockeye smolt - caused the Colville Tribes to change the proposed location of raceways for the steelhead broodstock program. After reviewing options and cost considerations, the Colville Tribes elected to construct the necessary raceways at Colville Tribes Bridgeport Hatchery. The Bridgeport raceway construction was completed in 2003. No fish were collected in the first Phase of the project because final permits were not in place. The second phase of the project was funded with PCSRF FY03 funds (project identification number CCT03-2).
