Fall fish rescue set to return on upper Deschutes

Deschutes River


In mid-October, Central Oregonians will again come together as a community, determined to do something about the ongoing seasonal streamflow challenges facing the upper Deschutes River with what’s become a traditional fall fish rescue.

Each fall, streamflows in the Upper Deschutes from Wickiup Reservoir to Bend are reduced to refill reservoirs for the following irrigation season.

A collaborative fish rescue planning effort is currently underway involving eight irrigation districts, the Deschutes River Conservancy, the Bend Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the Coalition for the Deschutes and dozens of volunteers from the community.
