Hewitt and Whiskey Lake Pike Suppression

Synopsis:This project will suppress invasive northern pike (Esox lucius) populations in Hewitt and Whiskey lakes and the Hewitt-Whiskey Creek outlet that connects these lakes to the Yentna River. Hewitt and Whiskey lakes support populations of sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka), as well as Chinook (O. tshawytscha), coho (O. kisutch), chum (O. keta), and pink (O. gorbuscha) salmon. Northern pike will be removed using 1” bar mesh gillnets and hoop traps from May through September 2018, 2019, and 2020.
