Lake Billy Chinook Fish Passage

In April a newly constructed fish passage facility at Round Butte Dam collapsed. While the mistake was costly and delayed implementation of downstream passage at the dam, Portland General Electric in Cooperation with the Confederation of Warm Springs tribes has begun work to repair and implement the passage project. The costly project is designed to provide anadromous access to much of the Upper Deschutes including the Crooked and Metolious Rivers, upstream passage blocked since the construction of Round Butte Dam.
