Nevada Irrigation District's Temporary Fix on Hemphill Dam for Fish Passage

 The theory is that salmon will be directed to the left side of dam by the increased waterflow.  The salmon need pools to get momentum to jump over the barriers.  Will this fix work?  

Government fish passage experts will tell us if this fix is adequate to allow fish to reach six miles of prime spawning habitat upstream of Hemphill Dam.
