Deschutes Updates
Since building our first fish ladder in 1907, we’ve been innovating to keep fish populations strong on the Deschutes.

With so much going on at the Pelton Round Butte Hydroelectric Project it can be hard to keep up. We want to make it easy for you, so visit this page often for regular updates about events, ongoing research and programs, and other topics of interest.

Lunchtime learning

  • How do we collaborate with partners to make strategy decisions for the reintroduction program?

  • What new approaches are we using to help fish migrate on the Deschutes?
