The Deschutes Land Trust's efforts to protect 33,000 acres for a proposed "community forest" have received a $2.5 million boost from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The first ocean bound steelhead smolt was caught and tagged at the Camp Polk Meadow screwtrap during the first week of April . After being caught, the fish was surgically fitted with a Pit Tag, so that biologists will know if and when he makes it to Round Butte Dam and the Selective Water Withdrawal Tower to continue his journey to the lower river and the great blue sea.
