Sea2Source - Episode 4: Where the Salmon Stop

S2S Ep 4 Where the Salmon Stop from Voyages of Rediscovery on Vimeo.

We have traveled as far as the Salmon can currently swim up stream. Now we are paddling on water that Salmon have not been able to reach in over 50 years. We pass by Chief Joseph Dam up Rufus Woods Lake to the famous Grand Coulee Dam. At Two Rivers we meet students from Wellpinit who carved the Salmon Savior canoe, and we paddle to Little Falls, the great fishery on the Spokane River.

#BREAKING. First Salmon (canoes) return to waters above Grand Coulee Dam

Columbia River canoe trips unite students, heritage

Paddling for politics and passion

Representing salmon, canoes travel up Columbia

Sea2Source Episode 3: The Hanford Reach

Sea2Source Episode 3: The Hanford Reach from Voyages of Rediscovery on Vimeo.

The Hanford Reach. One of the last free flowing sections of the Columbia in the Untied States and the last great spawning ground for salmon on the Main-Stem Columbia River. After passing through the Hanford Reach we paddle past 5 dams that have included fish passage. We soon run into the end of the line.
