Rolling along…

Normally, along this stretch of river the submerged shelf here is elevated enough that there are rapids here that cascade over the shelf falling about a foot or so. The water is up now at Winter flows. The pool remains, if deeper, and the Steelhead will still hold here before pushing up into the tail of the drift above.

Snake River below Hells Canyon Dam

SwittersB-Snake R.-SwittersB

Took this pic in October, 1991 while fishing the Snake River for late Summer Steelhead that had made their way up the Columbia R. and into the Snake R. Beautiful scenery and a great deal of history re mining and Native Americans was learned along the way.

Fly fishing treasures, the Sol Duc R. & Bogachiel R. join the Quillayute R. just east of La Push, Washington in the Olympic Peninsula (west of Forks). A beautiful year around fishery for Salmon, Steelhead & resident Cutt’s.

High Water Beautification

spillway-fish-Salmon River-Oregon-fish habitat-photography, SwittersB

Man’s attempt at some form of habitat management and control of Salmon/Steelhead/Sea Run Cutthroat passage up the Salmon River (Oregon Coast). I am sure there was/is a supposed benefit to the fish with the construction of this spillway at the hatchery on the Salmon River. Yet there is a visceral brain tweak with ugly, manmade, unnecessary coming to mind. The supposed practical vs. wild/natural conflict in my mind. The river does look better at a higher level and hides the ugly structure below. I doubt there was a passage issue before that the fish could not have conquered at such a low gradient. The first image was in early October, the second shot in January.
