Documentary on the removal of the Elwah Dams

Found this over at Moldy Chum. This is an interesting documentary on the removal of the Elwah dams on Washington’s Olympic Penninula. The first dam has been removed and the upper dam is currently in the removal process in hope of all sign of the dams being gone by 2014. This will help to bring back all five species of salmon and steelhead that once occupied these waters. Now if we can only keep them from populating this river with hatchery fish.

    Awesome! Why not give the river some time and see if native fish will come back to the upper reaches?
