Starting this week, Tacoma Power was scheduled to begin a recycling program for steelhead returning to the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery, operated by WDFW. Tacoma Power and the WDFW will equally share the cost of the program. Tacoma Power will transport and release 1,600 fish downstream at the I-5 boat launch, giving an- glers another shot at catching summer steelhead. Before undertaking the program, WDFW con- tracted with the U.S. Geological Survey to conduct a two-year study to determine, in part, how often recycled hatchery steelhead released in the lower Cowlitz stray into small tributary streams, where they could compete with wild steelhead. The study showed hatchery steelhead rarely moved into these smaller streams in the lower Cowlitz. "We're excited to provide additional opportuni- ties for steelhead fishing while remaining true to our commitment to protect and conserve wild steelhead," said Cindy LeFleur, WDFW regional fish manager. The recycle study was funded through fees paid into the Columbia River Salmon and Steelhead En- dorsement program. Anglers who fish for salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River and its tributaries pay an annual fee in addition to their fishing licenses. During July and August, up to 1,600 hatchery summer steelhead will be captured at the hatchery, marked to show they are being recycled, and released STAFF REPORT news@masoncounty com The one-tenth mile Madison Falls Trail in Olympic National Park's Elwha Valley will be closed to public entry for three weeks. Park trail crews and volunteers will make significant improvements to the trail, including construction of a new rock retaining wall, installa- tion of new railings and trail surface and revegetation of the work area. The trail was dosed July 7. This project, along with several others, is made possible through a $50,000 grant from the Washing- ton's National Park Fund awarded earlier this year. 'q~re are very grateful to the Washington's National Park Fund for their support of trails in Olym- pic National Park," Olympic Na- tional Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum said. "The Madison Falls Trail is one of the most popu- lar and accessible trails in the park - this project allows us to provide continued access for visitors of all mobility levels." The Madison Falls Trail is wheelchair and stroller accessible and culminates in views of the 60- foot Madison Falls. The small picnic area and accessi- ble restroom located at the Madison Falls Trailhead will remain open. Restrooms and short walk- ing trails are also available in and around the Elwha Campground, lo- cated a short distance away within the park. For more information on visiting Olympic National Park and current conditions of park roads, camp- ground and other facilities, people may consult the Olympic National Park website at www.nps.gov/olym.

"Tacoma Power funds the majority of the monitor- ing and evaluation work in the lower Cowlitz," said Keith Underwood, Tacoma Power natural resources manager.
