BOATER ALERT: Smolt trap being installed on White Salmon River in late March, 2017
BOATER ALERT: We will be installing a rotary screw trap on the White Salmon River in late March, 2017 which will be in the river until June. Boaters should use extreme caution near the trap. The trap will be located on river left, at river mile 1.4 near the “White Salmon ponds,” which are old, cement, fish-rearing raceways. The site is about 0.6 miles downstream of the Powerhouse and Old Skamania Bridge, also called the Burnt Bridge. Warning signs have been installed upstream of the trap location to alert boaters.
The smolt trap is part of a study to learn about salmon and steelhead recolonization in the White Salmon. Learn more here.
