Local fishermen raise salmon on North Creek

Northwest Times, Seattle, WA, January 27, 1997, by Andrew Walgamott

Local anglers Wayne Gibbs and Jim Culpepper will soon be the proud fathers of 200,000 coho salmon fingerlings. As part of the Koll North Creek Project, they are raising salmon from eggs in an attempt to boost runs of Oncorhynchus kisutch in North Creek.

Right now, trays of berry-red coho eggs slumber in an incubator the two men have built alongside North Creek. As members of Puget Sound Anglers, Culpepper and Gibbs felt compelled to ensure strong fish runs for the future.

"We both like to fish and we've caught a lot," Culpepper boasts, then adds seriously, "We figure we owe them something."

The incubators, placed just above stream level, are rubberized plastic screens set in 30" deep fiberglass tubs. A series of pipes brings water from a water pump (installed by Koll) upstream through a pond and into the incubators, keeping the water clear, cold, and silt free. Bolted on top of the tubs are plywood sheets to protect the salmon from the elements, ducks, and other shore life. Sandbags and plywood provide a diversion from North Creek in case of flood.

McLendon Hardware, Watson Asphalt, and Home Depot contributed pipe, plywood, gravel, and brass valves for the project. Culpepper figures most of the eggs will hatch in the next six weeks. The fingerlings then will be kep in the tubs for two months.

"This is as close to wild fish as it gets," says volunteer John Yeaman, of the modified hatchery. "The fish will get their food from the creek," whereas at hatcheries, fry are fed fish meal, he said.

The fry will be released into North Creek and Lake Washington where they will spend a year before heading to the ocean. The salmon will be subject to intense predation throughout their lives.

"If we get 1 or 2% of the salmon back, it would be a neat thing for this stream," said Culpepper.

Culpepper has been involved in raising salmon for four years--three or them in the Koll Business Park along North Creek. He has incubators on three other local creeks.

Death*4 September 2007 He died at Bothell, King Co., Washington, on 4 September 2007 at age 87.2,3 
Obituary*9 September 2007 James Marvin CULPEPPER James (Jim / "Pepper") M. Culpepper went home to join his wife of 62 years, Beverly & his Lord, Jesus Christ on September 4, 2007.
     He was born on October 22, 1919 in Palmyra, Arkansas & resided most of his adult life in Bothell and Woodinville. Jim graduated from Glendale High School in Arkansas & was an All League athlete in basketball, track & baseball and in 1938 began a sixty year career as a journeyman electrician. Just a few months ago he received his sixty year pin as a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
     In 1942 he left Arkansas to join the Navy to serve his country in WWII. After WWII, for a second career, he joined the Naval Air reserve and flew as a navigator / communications officer for the next 34 years. He met his future wife, Beverly (Hartwig) Culpepper in the Navy while both were involved in teaching weapons training. They married in Seattle in 1944.
     After leaving the Navy Jim worked for five years as an electrician in Seattle before he began a 25 year civil service career based at Ft. Lawton in Seattle. He was the manager of maintenance & construction for the US Army bases and sites in the Puget Sound area and he enjoyed being a Navy man commanding the Army personnel. He single-handedly managed the deactivation of the military base when it became Discovery Park.
     Jim always portrayed optimism and a positive attitude toward life and other people. He was always helping someone and was never too shy to talk to a stranger. At 16 years of age Jim and three friends went to salvage yards and bought parts and pieces to build a 1932 Ford car that actually ran. He and his wife, Beverly built two residences in Bothell and did 80% of the work themselves. Jim was also the neighborhood "Handyman", always fixing the neighbors plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems. Jim's summer vegetable gardens at his Woodinville and Bothell homes fed his family, the neighborhood families and many others who might drive by the area.
     Jim positively affected many young boys' lives being the Scoutmaster of Troop 427 in the Bothell area and helped his son's youth baseball teams by being an assistant coach, scorekeeper & statistician. He & his wife, Beverly were members of the Bothell United Methodist Church for over 55 years and Jim individually contributed hundreds of hours of labor constructing the new church and additions at its present location. James Culpepper was the epitome of hard work and responsibility.
     Jim had a passion for life, especially the love for his family and the love of fishing. Most of his summer vacations were spent with his family fishing at Sekiu, Westport, Cowlitz River (steelhead) and Spectacle Lake in Eastern Washington. If there was a "Hall of Fame" for Amateur Fishermen, Jim would most likely be President & MVP. Jim was actively involved in the private incubation and rearing of salmon in many of the Eastside creeks, his way of giving back to the fishery that he loved so much.
     Beverly, his wife of 62 years, preceded him in death this past December and James is survived by his son, Gary and daughter-in-law, Alea of Woodinville, WA; his daughter, Barbara of Beaverton, OR; five Grandsons: Caser, Shaker, Reis, Jeff & Jeremy; seven Granddaughters: Jill, Suzanne, Jacque, Jessica, Tiffany, Michelle and Rachel; & four super great grandchildren: Ellen, Tyler, James, and Kyle.
     A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 p.m., Friday, September 14th, 2007 at the Bothell United Methodist Church next to Bothell High School. Remembrances can be made to the Bothell United Methodist Church.2
