The tribe successfully reintroduced chinook salmon to the Umatilla River after 70 years of extinction. Other river basins in which the tribe has co-management responsibilities are the Columbia, Snake, Walla Walla, Tucannon, Grande Ronde, John Day, and Imnaha. In recent times, tribal fisheries have occurred only on the Umatilla and Columbia rivers.

      Umatilla National Wildlife Refuge sits in the Columbia Basin, which has a broad collection of habitats and thus a diversity of species. In turn, almost every habitat type found in the Columbia Basin can be found on Umatilla NWR—shrub-steppe; cliffs, rimrock and rock outcroppings; deep water, riparian and wetlands; and islands. The Columbia River’s transformation during the twentieth century has affected most political, economic, and social relationships in Oregon and the greater Pacific Northwest. The immense benefits of river development are undeniable, but it is a matter of opinion how much of the river.
