Kokanee no longer influence Lake Pend Oreille levels

Kokanee no longer pack enough influence to keep the U.S. Corps of Engineers from fluctuating water levels at Lake Pend Oreille during winter. Since 1996, the lake level behind Albeni Falls Dam has generally -- not always -- been kept above elevation 2,055 feet to avoid dewatering the eggs kokanee deposit in shoreline gravels until the fish hatch and can swim away.
