Save Our Wild Salmon

by Rocky Barker
U.S. District Judge James Redden wrote a letter Thursday that set the stage for his hearing Nov. 23 on the federal government’s biological opinion on the Columbia and Snake River dams.
The opinion is the federal government’s 10-year plan for operating the federal dams an the other measures it plans to take to offset the dams’ impact on 13 stocks of endangered salmon and steelhead in the Columbia watershed, a area larger than France. Environmentalists, fishermen, fishing businesses and the Nez Perce tribe have challenged the plan and earlier plans since 2001 in court.
