"We can now say that restoration of anadromous salmon in Olympic National Park is underway"

Adult chinook salmon were observed on the Elwha River in Olympic National Park, park officials and biologists reported, less than five months after removal of one of the two dams.

These are the first observed Elwha River salmon to naturally migrate upstream into the park, according to a statement released by the park.

How is this possible, don't people know that fish are only there because the dam kept the fish around? If you don't believe me just ask Doc Hastings. Doc is the expert on fish management and dams. "Further, Hastings said, dams are helping salmon recovery." So I think we must need to put some dams on this river in order to get more fish back into the river.
