2.) When do they anticipate that it will re-open?
3.) How are the efforts going?
4.) Do they plan on doing other such re-introductions in the future on nearby creeks like Sams or Thunderhead?
and 5.) How high of a water fall is required to be a sufficient "barrier" to fish getting upstream? (That one came to me as I was looking at the large water fall there on Lynn Camp.
1 1.5 to 2 years
2 2 to 3 years (unless problems occour)
3 Look at my posts and others in fisheries management & Biology
4 Sam's already done and Thunderhead has no barrier
5 I'm really not sure but a couple of 12 to 15 footers keep out the Rainbows on Road Prong

There's my short answer at 2:30 AM Good Night
