Self-explanatory legacy of the US Army Corp of Engineers;the same folks who have yet to build the replacement to the existing dam in Mansitique, four years after the agreement was signed with the State.

Yeah, God bless Phil Sheridan...solely for what he did to protect what is now Yellowstone National Park, not his approach to subjugating the plains Indian tribes via slaughtering the buffalo herds that existed on the "dirt"!

My mom's side of the family is populated with farmers, good hard working folks.   That said, they view the world from a productivity growth standpoint-everything positive in their profession is tied to increased yield-per-acre.  This perspective runs counter to wild populations where a variety of environmental factors can elicit marked swings in annual numbers, particularly post-dam construction and the ill conceived USACE hatchery program that has essentially resulted in limiting the genetic variability of the stocks as well as diminishing the variety of spawning cohorts that compose the current population of fish in the system.  Add-in Man-made impediments and barriers, as is the case in the Columbia and Snake systems, and you end-up with an environment that is barely conducible to the propagation of salmon, a bit like the management of the Great Lakes when it comes to the alewife stock maintenance, which limits our transplanted salmon populations' innate ability to expand.

Or the lack of a fish ladder on the dam on Dead River. A sad commentary on today's lack of foresight.
