The last of the Glines Canyon dam on the Elwha River in Washington was removed on August 27, freeing the river. "I never thought I'd see this happen in my lifetime. It's a great day to be a dambuster!” - Yvon Chouinard Photo: Travis Rummel #DamNationFilm

YOU GUYS!! As of YESTERDAY, the Elwah River is finally completely, totally free! The last section of the Glines Canyon Dam was blasted away now giving Salmon and Steelhead passage to through what used to be Lake Mills and beyond! This is not only great for the fish, but for the whole ecosystem. Larger predators shall come back for the fish feast and return to the ancient cycle the Salmon enables. Check the link in my profile for some sweet footage. πŸ’₯

This is the first weekend in a while that I am not camping somewhere gorgeous. I am missing me big time leading this retreat in the John Day River wilderness and learning about its landscape, history and legends. ONDA is taking great care to preserve and protect the public lands and native fish species (and wildlife) of this area. It is the second longest free-flowing river in the US (without damns for 281 miles!) and the third longest in the world. #yogaNDhealth #getoutside @patagonia #damnationfilm @ben_knight #onda #johndayriver #conservation #traveloregon #blessed #beautiful

The largest dam removals in human history. Formerly #lakemills, the #elwhariver now flows free of the #glinescanyondam and #elwhadam and now allows wild, pacific salmon back up to spawn as they have done for thousands of years prior to 1911 #damnthedams #elwhawildandfree

In 2011, the greatest dam removal project in history began. The Elwah River had been held captive for almost a century whilst the native salmon beat their heads against concrete year after year after year. Inspired by #damnationfilm produced by @patagonia, @desritz and I made it a point to pay a quick visit the the remains of what used to be Lake Mills. Created by the Glines Canyon Dam (210 ft) which was built in 1927, before the area had been declared a National Park and was constructed, along with it's lower river brother, the Elwah Dam without fish passage. We wanted to see what had become of the area since the waters were given back their freedom and what we saw was like a stiff drink. It was hard to swallow what we had done to a landscape, but in the end, hope tastes so good. Hope that Thomas Bigeater's words ring true, "This is not forever. Dams break. Rivers never do. - 'The River Why' #crackdownondeadbeatdams

tbg22 : Great quote, need to see this
missmeganosborne : Holter Dam, Montana and Glen Canyon Dam, Arizona produce some of the biggest trout populations on the West Coast. Below the dam. How do you explain that?
parkhere : @missmeganosborne I'm not sure what your asking me?
parkhere : @missmeganosborne that's great news, btw
missmeganosborne : DamNationFilm Facebook About: "This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature." @parkhere the suggestion of dams disturbing the fish populations in general that DamNation is preaching is incorrect. As a fly fisher who travels to many rivers, that have dams and manmade ladders, the biggest fish with the largest populations still exist near such manmade operations. I have fished the salmon run on the Yukon River in Alaska, with a manmade salmon ladder that would not allow their full cycle of spawning to exist without the assistance of the ladder. The ladder system on this river also provides a power source for the civilians. All living in harmony. Just wanted to clearly explain my experiences with manmade operations and how they are not affecting fish populations. Things that affect and desolate fish populations is the introduction of alien fish or shellfish as an experiments.
parkhere : @missmeganosborne thank you for your perspective #tightlines

Throwback to when I worked on recovering Idaho's Endangered Sockeye Salmon. This is the southern most population of Sockeye in North America and swim an incredible 900 miles and climb 6500+ft up the Columbia and Snake River to reach Redfish lake. The once massive migrations were so large the blood red spawning fish nearly turned the lake red. (Hints the name Redfish Lake.) Recovery efforts are inhibited by to several damns that block their migration back home. Hatcheries are supplying broodstock populations until something is done. Its a race against time. Its estimated that the cost of each fish is around $9000. That means there's a lot of money swimming in this picture. Is this really sustainable? Time will tell. #redfishlake #idaho #damnation #idahoconservation #rei1440project #nature #sockeye #salmon #snakeriver #ColumbiaRiver #redfishlakesockeye #sockeyesalmon

mattstoecker : Cool pic! Lower 4 Snake River Dams + hatcheries + barging fish + climate change predictions for those reservoirs water quality = unsustainable. Removing those dams is critical.
robatron : @mattstoecker I completely agree. I love your work and what you guys have created. I have a pretty good perspective on the wild salmon monopoly in the Pacific North West and you represented it perfectly. I'd love to share some ideas/info if you guys ever need it! Keep up the good work!!

carmen__mariee : Wow, those fish and that pic πŸ’—!
andersonsupplyco : I love this picture and everything you said about it @robatron. We first fell in love with the salmon when we moved here 8 years ago, since then we have been to the Stanley Fish Hatchery almost every year. Can't get enough of their story, and I absolutely worship them!

Spring-run Chinook #salmon and Butte Creek are threatened by dams operated by PG&E. The dam operations remove water and raise temperatures in the creek, which leads to disease and salmon die-offs. Our clients have been monitoring salmon in the creek to ensure populations don't dip below critical levels. #California #SavetheSalmon #damnationfilm
