North Unit Teams Up with ‘Mt. Hood Environmental’ Biologists to Rescue More Fish!

In conjunction with the Lava Island Fish Rescue, which is sponsored by the Deschutes Basin Board of Control and coordinated by the Deschutes River Conservancy, the Main Canal Fish Rescue (managed and funded by North Unit) yields further benefits to mitigating local trout mortality and sustaining fish populations in the Deschutes Basin.

In the 3rd week of October 2022, North Unit staff, with field specialists from Mt. Hood Environmental, teamed up to salvage any fish which may have escaped through the Bend fish screens into North Unit’s main canal during shutdown for the storage season.
