The redband trout is Spokane River's signature native fish.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) conducted a survey in October 2007 of the Redband trout in Spokane River, and they found some startling results. In the 1980s and 1990s, fisheries managers estimated Redband trout populations in the upper Spokane River between 2,000 and 19,000 fish. The 2008 survey found fewer than 1,200 fish!!


Our Chapter mission is to works to protect these beautiful native Redbands.
