Feather River Salmon Spawning Restoration Project Video

Postby WB Staff » Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:50 am

In anticipation of salmon spawning season this fall, we placed 5,000 cubic yards of gravel in key salmon spawning areas of the Feather River in Oroville near the Feather River Fish Hatchery. Last winter’s high river flows washed much of the gravel in the area downstream. Adult salmon need clean spawning gravel to dig their nests, called “redds,” where they lay their eggs. This project improves and increases the spawning habitat available to the salmon, in an effort to boost salmon population.
