Lake Sakakawea Salmon Spawning Goal Surpassed

October 31, 2012, 6:10 AM

BISMARCK, ND -

Fisheries crews collected 1.5 million eggs during their annual salmon spawning operation on Lake Sakakawea.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department says that easily surpassed the goal of 900,000 eggs. North Dakota is sending some eggs to South Dakota and possibly Montana.

Dave Fryda with Game and Fish says most of the eggs came from the lake, with the rest from the Missouri River below Garrison Dam. Plans for next year are to stock Sakakawea with 200,000 salmon.

Chinook salmon begin their spawning run in October. The fish cannot naturally reproduce in North Dakota, so state and federal officials collect eggs and transport them to the Garrison Dam National Fish Hatchery.
