A 12 year experiment is getting started on Central Oregon's Deschutes River.  Brian Gorman with NOAA Fisheries explains they’ve declared  hatchery steelhead as “experimental.”  He says wild steelhead on that part of the Deschutes were endangered because dams at Pelton Round Butte were originally built without fish passages.  It has been 40 years since that stretch of the Deschutes has had wild steelhead.
