Some great news that broke on New Year’s Eve! The Oregon Court of Appeals delivered a victory for Clackamas River salmon and steelhead in an opinion determining that municipal water users must leave enough water in the Clackamas for imperiled fish populations!

This is a welcome decision for all those who value Oregon’s incredible rivers, salmon, and steelhead, and especially for those in the Portland metro area who regularly enjoy the Clackamas River.

The Court of Appeals ruling is available here.
