Comments"U.S. Bureau of Fisheries stocked Lake Whitefish into Lake Pend Oreille, ID, in 1889; the fish was also stocked into Flathead Lake, MT, and more than likely gained access from these introductions in the Columbia River during high-runoff years; became established in the upper Columbia River and reservoirs in WA."
