Extending The Un-Damming Of The Rogue

The Rogue River is a very different stream from just a decade ago. 

The removal of Savage Rapids, Gold Hill, and Gold Ray Dams from the river means it now flows freely from North of Shady Cove, all the way to the Pacific. 

But the Rogue River Watershed Council says there's still work to do, removing small dams and other fish obstacles from tributaries to the Rogue.  Newly-awarded grants will boost that work.  Brian Barr of the RRWC visits with details.
