 Columbia River Basin White Sturgeon
Historically, white sturgeon inhabited the Columbia River from the mouth upstream into Canada, the Snake River upstream to Shoshone Falls, and the Kootenai River upstream to Kootenai Falls (Scott and Crossman 1973; Figure).
White sturgeon populations in free-flowing and inundated reaches of the Columbia River Basin have been negatively affected by the abundant hydropower dams in most of the mainstem Columbia and Snake rivers (Rieman and Beamesderfer 1990).
Research on the Kootenai River is examining the effects of increased discharge on the spawning behavior of white sturgeon.

During the mid-1890s, when declining salmon returns and arguments over the price paid for salmon led to violent fights between fisherman and cannery operators, Stone was instrumental in developing and operating dozens of hatcheries in Oregon and Washington on tributaries of the Columbia River.
