Sprague River restoration project will provide deep cool pools for fish


BLY, Oregon — A major restoration project on a river in the upper Klamath Basin has been completed

The Herald and News ( ) reports Friday that the work on a stretch of the Sprague River running through the Black Drake Ranch in Bly will provide deep pools of cool water for fish, and restore the river and nearby forest to a more natural condition.

The project was collaboration between ranch owner Greg Bulkley and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Bulkley says the Klamath Country Fly Casters and others supported the work.

The Sprague is a spawning area for endangered sucker fish and a major tributary of Upper Klamath Lake.
