Feds double flows to Klamath

Parasite found in salmon prompts sudden increase 

After a deadly parasite that killed nearly 70,000 Klamath salmon in 2002 was detected in Lower Klamath River salmon Monday, a federal agency increased flows from a reservoir on the Trinity River, the Klamath’s largest tributary, to flush out the parasite.

U.S. Bureau of Reclamation doubled the flows from the Trinity River reservoir, Trinity Lake, on Tuesday and said it will keep the flows up for seven days to prevent the spread of Ich (pronounced “ick”), a common name for the non-native parasite Ichthyophthirius multifiliis and the disease that it causes.

Runners of all ages take advantage of road closure in half-marathon and 5K races 

The first-ever Run in the Redwoods drew 75 participants to Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park to take advantage of Newton B. Drury Parkway’s closure on Saturday for 5K and half-marathon races.

“It is a fundraiser to do some trail improvement here, but it is also an opportunity just to get people out into the parks and realize that we have fantastic public land to support,” said Cathy Bonser, executive director of the Redwood Parks Association. “Every year the parkway is closed to vehicles on this day, and we encourage hikers and bikers to come out. We thought, ‘Why not have runners, too?’ This was a good way to publicize that.”
