Kokanee return to spawn in Dolores River

Thanks to increased flows on the Dolores River from summer monsoon rains, the kokanee salmon had enough water to make their spawning run this year.

Last year, there was no run because the lake was so low, explained Jim White, a aquatic biologist with Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

In low water years, the river carves a wide channel in the lake bed that is too shallow for the kokanee salmon to make their way to spawning grounds, 5 miles up river at a specially designed fish hatchery.
