Waiting for counts to reach 20% of historical norms before doing something is like waiting for 80% of your house to burn down before calling the fire department. According to the fish passage center the historical counts were 12+ million, 100% wild fish and now the percent wild returns are far less than 20% of that number. How many light bulbs would we all have to unscrew to equal the electricity produced by the lower four Snake dams? You can still get water out of the river for agriculture without the dams. It's time to move away from inferior hatchery fish and dam preservation. Wild should be the way forward.
