The Bellevue Issaquah Chapter of TU has been trapping outmigrating kokanee fry on tributaries of Lake Sammamish for a decade.  The traps are staffed by volunteers who count and release our precious fish.  Trapping season occurs three days per week from mid-March through May.  If you are interested in participating please contact the chapter (here).

Kokanee Adult Trapping has begun!  Every year TU helps King County operate kokanee weirs on each of the Kokanee Index Streams (Ebright, Laughing Jacobs, and Lewis).  The purpose of trapping kokanee is to collect a portion of the run for the supplementation (Hatchery) program. Shifts typically start around 6pm and end at 10-11p.  Please check out the schedule and email Dave Kyle at with your contact information and availability.  NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
