Rescued Lampreys
As part of Mud Mountain Dam’s Fish Passage Facility construction near Buckley, Washington, the Corps’ 1940s-built trap and haul facility needed to temporarily close. Corps and Puyallup Tribe of Indians Fisheries employees worked alongside each other rescuing fish before the shutdown. The team collected fish from the temporary fish ways, the ladder and trap. About 50 lamprey and between 50 and 100 juvenile salmonids were returned to the river.
