Meeting examines Yuba fish

What makes life hard on salmon and steelhead in the lower Yuba River?

Blame’s been laid in the past on everything from water temperature to hard-to-climb fish ladders at Daguerre Point Dam to poorly screened agricultural diversions that suck up juvenile fish to poachers.

At a meeting tonight, officials will try to lay out what they think hurts salmon and steelhead in the Yuba River below Englebright Dam. They also may talk about what they’d like to study next and how they’re going to prioritize solutions.

They’re also seeking public comment.

Tonight’s meeting is being held by the Lower Yuba River Fisheries Technical Working Group, which is funded by Calfed, the Bay Delta restoration effort.

The meeting will be conducted by Craig Fleming, habitat restoration coordinator of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Anadromous Fish Restoration Program.
