Passage on the Crooked River

Fish passage projects are underway on the Crooked River in Central Oregon. Once a highly productive salmon and steelhead tributary it has been blocked by Pelton Dam. As passage over Pelton Dam comes online the Crooked River Watershed Council, Portland General Electric and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. The passage projects are designed to give fish access to Ochoco and McKay Creeks, both are considered prime spawning habitat. See more coverage on the CBB bulletin here.
