Report: Fish Passage Above Grand Coulee Can Be Done

Columbia River tribal leaders pressed their case on Tuesday for returning salmon and steelhead to more than 100 miles of habitat that has been blocked for decades by two large dams.

It’s been nearly 80 years since salmon and steelhead made it past Chief Joseph and Grand Coulee dams in Washington’s Upper Columbia Basin. It’s long been a goal for tribes to see the fish return to the blocked waters where they once spawned.

A team of researchers presented their findings on Tuesday to the Northwest Power and Conservation Council.
