Bonneville Fish Hatchery Dam

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The small dam used as a water source for Bonneville Fish Hatchery (bobcat)
The dam in winter (Steve Hart)


This is a small dam used to supply water for the Bonneville Fish Hatchery. My best guess is that there's a pipe under the access road that delivers the water the the hatchery. High on the east side of the canyon near here are remnants of a flume that carried water to the hatchery in days gone by. At that point, there may have been an earlier dam farther up the creek.

A fish ladder allows salmon to continue up Tanner Creek to the base of Wahclella Falls.
