LEABURG: The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife this week released more than 50,000 trout, including nearly 10,000 “pounders,” into Willamette Valley fishing holes in an emergency action triggered by a gate malfunction at Leaburg Dam.
On Monday, ODFW trucked 9,300 one-pound trout and 42,000 fingerlings to six locations from Salem to Eugene after water levels needed to operate Leaburg Hatchery near Springfield became critically low.

LEABUEG: The Eugene Water & Electric Board has closed Leaburg Lake to all boaters following the failure of one of three roll gates at Leaburg Dam on Tuesday.
The unexpected shutdown of the gate closest to Highway 126 on Dec. 23rd leaves the run-of-the-river dam with one functioning roll gate. The middle roll gate experienced a failure in January of 2012 and is currently being repaired at the 73-year-old hydroelectric facility on the McKenzie River. The three 16-feet-tall by 100-feet-wide gates regulate the volume of water spilled from the dam on the river east of Eugene.

MistletoeJust how poisonous is holiday mistletoe?
By eNature
Almost all of us have come across American Mistletoe, the white or green-berried parasitic plant hung in doorways during the holiday season to elicit kisses from those standing beneath it.
Reputed to be the “kiss of death,” Mistletoe (the Phoradendron species is found in North America) is said by some to be so poisonous that humans can be killed if they ingest the leaves or berries.
