The bureau previously denied a request from the Hoopa Valley Tribe to release water from Lewiston Dam on the Trinity River, which flows in the Klamath River, to prevent the spread of a parasite that attacks salmon in stagnant water, though the bureau said it would release some water if significant numbers of fish started dying.
