Historic irrigation diversions block large fish from accessing spawning grounds in the upper Warner Lakes basin.

Project Overview

The Warner Basin Aquatic Habitat Partnership is improving fish passage for species at risk.  Partners have replaced old diversion dams and unscreened ditches with new, innovative designs specially designed to help the Warner sucker and Warner redband trout access their habitat.  As of 2019, projects have opened and improved access to over 33 miles on Twentymile Creek and 53 miles on Honey Creek.
