Report: Fish Passage Above Grand Coulee Can Be Done – NW Public Broadcasting


Ok. We now know it can be done. Let’s go do it.

It’s been nearly 80 years since salmon and steelhead made it past Chief Joseph and Grand Coulee dams in Washington’s Upper Columbia Basin. It’s long been a goal for tribes to see the fish return to the blocked waters where they once spawned. A team of researchers presented their findings on Tuesday to the Northwest Power and Conservation Council. In short, they said, salmon can survive in the upper reaches of the Columbia Basin, and fish passage needs to happen at the two dams. Courtney Flatt reports. (NW Public Broadcasting)
