Helping Native Fish Return After 100 YearsChris Gannon is the Director of the Crooked River Watershed Council. This past fall Chris and his team helped Chinook salmon and Middle Columbia steelhead get closer to their native spawning grounds on the upper Crooked River by removing the 100+ year old Stearns Dam. An impressive collaboration among government agencies, the landowner, and environmental groups over a ten year period, the Watershed Council shepherded this project to it's completion this past December.
