PORT ANGELES — After 71 years confined to a narrow channel, Morse Creek has been set free.
The North Olympic Salmon Coalition and its partner agencies last month reactivated 2,400 feet of the channel and floodplain as it existed in 1939, before a dike was installed that pinned the creek against the valley wall and cut off the large stream from 9.3 acres of floodplain.
The Morse Creek realignment is intended to restore salmon and trout habitat upstream from U.S. Highway 101 near the S curve east of Port Angeles.
