Snake River Salmon have been trucked, put on barges, diverted up fish ladders - all in the hope that enough would bypass the four dams standing in their way to reach their historic habitat, and ensure their future existence.. But it's not working. The time has come to breach the dams and reconnect wild salmon to this important watershed.
