Invasive predator alarmingly close to critical salmon habitat on Columbia River

An invasive predator is threatening to sink millions of dollars in salmon and steelhead recovery, and it’s inching closer to creating a crisis on the Columbia River.

Northern pike were thought to be over 80 miles from Grand Coulee Dam and the salmon and steelhead below. Last week, the Confederated Tribes of the Colville captured a northern pike in Lower Lake Roosevelt near the Grand Coulee Dam.

That means the predator fish are now less than 10 miles from the critical salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River.
