Interesting of video of a dam removal on Oregon’s Sandy River from FishKamp. Fished this stretch right below the damn down to the Slaughter Hole many times. The dam was much higher than stage shown here, with a large pool upstream. This was a positive step for the Sandy River in 2007.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
