Groups seek to remove old dams on Evans Creek

Two of Oregon's worst wild fish barriers could be removed from Evans Creek as early as the summer of 2015 under a plan to open as much as 70 miles of prime spawning habitat for the Rogue River Basin's wild salmon and steelhead.

WaterWatch of Oregon has teamed with local conservation groups, angling clubs and state and federal agencies to get the creek's two unused and abandoned dams — Fielder and Wimer — and their antiquated fish ladders out of the way of migrating salmon, including threatened wild coho.

The dams, which date back more than 100 years, are on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Top 10 list for worst wild fish impediments in Oregon.
