Diversions Depart, Fish Arrive On Battle Creek
All eyes are the Klamath River, as a plan to remove four major hydroelectric dams moves forward. But another stream much further south is getting continued attention, also to restore habitat and welcome fish back to areas long closed to the.
Battle Creek in Shasta County had several hydro facilities, and those are being removed and modified to allow fish passage.
Recently the Coleman National Fish Hatchery on lower Battle Creek took a truckload of young salmon to the upper reaches of the north fork of the creek, in the hope that the fish will now consider that area "home." Doug Killam from California Fish and Wildlife and Howard Brown from NOAA Fisheries explain the plans.
