Dams Out: Klamath Dams


Earlier this year, California Trout released our Top 5 California DAMS OUT report which profiles obsolete dams that are ripe for removal. This month, they’re taking a closer look at the Klamath Dams. The Klamath River flows through Southern Oregon and Northern California and is home to four aging hydroelectric dams. These dams block access to over 300 miles of spawning and rearing habitat for chinook salmon. Removing the Klamath Dams will be the largest dam removal project in US history.
