A rotary screw trap is being installed on the lower White Salmon River on Thursday, March 24, 2016 to monitor juvenile salmon and steelhead. Boaters should use extreme caution near the trap, which is located on river left about 0.6 miles downstream of the powerhouse. Warning signs have been installed upstream of the trap location. The trap is part of a study to monitor juvenile salmon and steelhead in the White Salmon River after the historic removal of Condit Dam.

The Mid-Columbia Fisheries Enhancement Group is developing a Fish Habitat Conservation Approach focused on the long-term management of salmon and steelhead habitat along the lower six miles of the White Salmon River. The Enhancement Group has worked closely with American Whitewater, Yakama Nation, and resource agencies to develop a collective vision for the White Salmon River that realizes the full benefits of Condit Dam removal for fish and the community. It is important for the boating community to be a part of this discussion, and we encourage local boaters to participate in a community meeting in Husum on Saturday, November 15th.
