NID finished fish passage over the Lincoln Gauging Station last December; NID will have one more dam, the Gold Hill, before fish can get to Wise Powerhouse, one mile downstream from Auburn. Salmon can swim 22 miles up the 33 miles length of the Auburn Ravine now. When Hemphill is retrofitted for fish passage, they can swim to Gold Hill Dam 27 miles up Auburn Ravine. If you would like to help with funding, please send donations in any amount to SARSAS, PO Box 4269, Auburn, CA95604 to help get fish to Auburn, CA. The SARSAS tax deductible number is 80-0291680. Please be generous.
