Opal Springs Passage
The first full year of passage at Opal springs has gone by, in that time two runs of Steelhead and one run of Chinook Salmon have come into the Crooked through the ladder. Many other native fish species are benefiting from the ladder as well, such as northern pike minnows, mountain whitefish, redband trout, various suckers, and even kokanee. Being able to reach new habitat and have the option of swimming up or downstream, is key to the survival and genetic diversity of fish.
Currently over 40 steelhead have used the ladder! 03/02/2021
