The Great Outdoors: Returning Native Fish to the Deschutes River


Historically, red-band trout, salmon and steelhead were plentiful in the upper and middle Deschutes River, but their numbers have dropped in the last few decades. In this week’s Great Outdoors, Brian Jennings looks at new efforts to return the native fish to our local waterways.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor, Parr Lumber, for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
