Our Priority Issues

  1. On the Lower Deschutes River, hatch timing has been altered and several aquatic insect populations appear to be in decline. Upon initial investigation, these changes may be due to the recent appearance of a new algae proliferation, not previously documented in the river. The algae are responding, based on expert opinion, to a change in water quality. The DRA is aggressively and diligently working to determine the nature and extent of the water quality changes as well as the extent of the algae growth and its consequences.

  2. Habitat conditions and stream flows: The DRA will analyze and address any habitat or stream flow problems in tributaries and along the lower Deschutes River Basin below the Round Butte Hydro-electric Dam Complex that may be affected by roads, recreational use, agricultural use, railroad operations and general land management activities.

  3. Fish population health, diversity and abundance: The DRA will ensure fish inventory and monitoring efforts are consistently conducted so that management reflects documented conditions and ensure that fish meet spawning and escapement goals.
