Dam Removal Updates: Klamath and Calapooia

Thanks to Issac Roman for pointing us to this article on the Trout Underground. Tom Chandler explains how dam-huggers are claiming “dams are good for salmon, it’s all the Native Americans’ fault, the UN wants to seize our lands and create a wildlife preserve, and his personal favorite: the Klamath’s coho salmon are not native to the Klamath watershed, so their ESA listing is illegal — as is removing the Klamath River dams to protect them.

Also, you can check out this great video by Freshwaters Illustrated about a dam removal project on a small Willamette Valley tributary, the Calapooia.

    I admit to being ignorant about that river, so thanks for the education.
