Abstract: This project will benefit subsistence users of western Prince William Sound. There are two phases to the project. Phase 1, which began in FY 96, verified the ability of Solf Lake to support a sustainable population of sockeye salmon. Phase 2 included stocking the lake with approximately 100,000 sockeye salmon fry, then ensuring access to the lake for returning adult salmon. The stocking program began in 1998 along with modification to the two outlets to control water levels. The reconstruction of the fishway in the eastern channel was completed in the summer of 2000. Returning adult salmon to Solf Lake will be monitored starting in 2001 to evaluate the improvements.
