Native Fish Conservation - Klamath Anadromous Fisheries Reintroduction program

The four lower Klamath hydroelectric dams on the Klamath River are scheduled to be removed as early as 2023. The removal of these dams will open up over 400 miles of anadromous fish habitat that has been blocked for over 100 years. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is leading or partnering with others to establish procedures to monitor Chinook salmon, coho salmon, steelhead, and Pacific lamprey once they are able to repopulate habitat above the dams.

The plans that have been developed provide information, recommendations, strategic approaches that are based on science, and are supported by stakeholders to guide reintroduction efforts of anadromous fishes into the Oregon portion of the Klamath River Basin.
