Tribal Fisher Outreach

The Port of Hood River is working with community partners to advance replacement of the Hood River -White Salmon Interstate Bridge. The Port is seeking to connect with tribal fishers that fish the Columbia River near the Hood River Bridge and/or use the White Salmon and Stanley Rock Treaty Fishing Access Sites, Underwood In-Lieu Site, and East White Salmon Fish Processing Facility. Your participation in the following survey will help the project team better understand the unique needs and concerns of treaty fishing rights and fishing site users.

This survey should take approximately 7-10 minutes  to complete. No personal information other than what you provide will be collected or used, and no responses included in the survey summary will be attributed to any individual. We appreciate your time and involvement in this important project!
