The removal of three older dams on the mainstem Rogue provides 157 miles of river basically free of artificial barriers to fish migration. But did you know that other dams have come and gone over time? This talk will present information on the dams of the Rogue and how these and other structures create problems for native migratory fish. An update on the status of Chinook runs and the fishery will be provided along with observations of fish use in restored habitat. Combined with ongoing stewardship throughout the watershed, these projects provide momentum for restoration on the Rogue that makes this a very exciting time for people who care about the river and its fish and wildlife resources.
