Upper Green River - Howard Hanson

Another of my dearest steelhead and salmon rivers is getting some fair treatment - a fish passage system over Howard Hansen Dam. I'd fished the headworks for many years and went back to have a peek last year while in Seattle on business and saw the project in action. This should have an impact on the wild population in the Green which has always been pretty good despite it's much maligned reputation.

FYI

That's quite a project Juro, I wonder who is paying for that? The fish ladder & habitat construction will probably cost twice or more what the original project cost in the 60's

Never the less it is quite a remarkable engineering project & much needed from looks of the steelhead & salmon situation as I understand it.
