A great step in the right direction for sure! Although sadly it will never return to what it was...
Nice HDR work.

Thanx Peter.......Yes it is...I'm just glad that it at least has a chance to recover some of the fish runs .....it will def. create a ton of new spawning grounds...

Is it a goods river for fishing....it looks to be. Did they have a fish ladder at the dam?

It was a fantastic river for fishing......but because there were No fishladders or any other means for migration....it left only 7 miles of river bfore the dam for spawning, also the lack of sediment traveling down stream and heavy net fishing greatly affected this as well. The tribe has a hatchery at the mouth and the state has one up river a few miles for both Salmon and Stealhead. I just hope with the moritorium on fishing there some of the wild stock and native stock can replennish and make it a healthy inviroment again.. :-)
