PRINEVILLE, OR -- Starting tomorrow federal agencies, will increase flows in the Crooked River. Biologist Brett Hodgson with Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife says juvenile steelhead are being held in pens in Ochoco Creek. He says when the water is released from Bowman Dam into the Crooked River it should boost the juvenile salmon on their journey to the ocean. Hodgson urges anglers to be careful and stay close to the bank of the Crooked River. He says the flow will jump from 330-to-550-cubic feet per second between Friday and Sunday. All of this is an effort to restore Chinook Salmon and Steelhead in the Upper Deschutes Basin
