For the last three years, the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation have been learning a new, more selective way to fish. Purse seining is a live capture method of fishing that allows the tribe to catch and keep hatchery fish for distribution to their tribal members and let the wild fish go free unharmed. This year the tribe bought their first purse seiner, the Dream Catcher.

The project is funded by Bonneville Power Administration, part of the agency's comprehensive program to protect and restore Columbia Basin fish through habitat restoration, hatchery reforms and improved fish passage at the federal dams.
