New Fish Ladder is Being Built


In compliance with a request from the state fish and game commission, the Bend Water, Light and Power Co. yesterday commenced work on a large fish ladder at their power dam in this city. The new work is necessitated by the plan for making the river open to salmon coming up from the Columbia to spawn, and the fishway already installed at the dam was insufficient in size to allow the passage of the big fish.

The ladder now under construction will cost in the neighborhood of $500, Manager T. H. Foley estimates.
