Fish Barrier Removal

Culverts often create barriers to fish passage. Clark County's Public Works Department has successfully removed fish barriers at the following locations:

  • Winkler and Coyote creeks on the Washougal River near the Skamania County line.
  • Lockwood, Brickie, and Riley creeks on the East Fork of the Lewis River.
  • John Creek at NE Cedar Creek Road, Cedar Creek, North Forth of the Lewis River.

Funding for these projects includes $245,000 in grants. The county is currently investigating replacement of a culvert at a tributary creek to Cedar Creek crossing under Cedar Creek Road that is eligible for grants. For more information about culvert modifications, contact Heath Henderson at (360) 397-6118 ext. 4358 or
