Fish Salvage 2017 at Lava Island channel area – with Photos!

This year, the annual Wickiup Dam drawdown brought the reservoir water releases down to the ‘winter’ rate of 100 cfs – starting on October 16th.

Many local volunteers and friends from the following organizations joined together for this year’s Fish Salvage at the Lava Island channel of the Upper Deschutes every day from October 16 through 19th.  Special recognition goes to the organizations’ coordinators, listed below.

To all those that participated, THANK YOU – over 2000 fish were salvaged this year!

Check out photographs, including a few short video clips, that some of the organizers and volunteers shared with us while out at this year’s fish salvage.
