Two manuscripts are featured in this document. The first discusses how the Deschutes River is an ideal place for trout, not only for sport but for the fish to inhabit. The river benefits from the lack of silt in the water and protection from dumping pollutants. Also due to a lack of a paved road, access is limited to the area. The second manuscript discusses the importance of conducting surveys that determine what makes a place suitable for a fish to inhabit. Factors such as what are the food sources and water temperature are to be considered. The writer makes the point that one cannot gauge from mere visual observation the amount of fish in any given stream. To truly determine the population, in depth surveys must be done.
206 p. In the Western Water Policy Review Act of 1992, Congress charged the President with reviewing and reporting on federal activities in the west that affect the allocation and use of water resources. The legislation directed the Western Water Policy Review Advisory Commission to advise the President, considering many specific facets of western water issues. This report was written on behalf of the Commission. The author, who worked 12 years as a lawyer for the Northwest Power Planning Council, has sought to objectively discuss legal and economic issues about salmon recovery for the Columbia Basin. The study looks out at the basin from a particular point where water policy and salmon policy meet, and asks how water programs, especially federal water programs, are holding up.
