We are seeking volunteers to help close off flow to the fishway and to clean debris out of the structure – we will supply tools and waders, but equipment is in limited supply so please bring what you have. Weather and river conditions permitting of course, so rainfall prior to this event will likely cause the date to be adjusted until conditions are suitable.
