Fish truck wreckOn January 7, Oregon State Police troopers cited Ray C. Lewis, 45, of Umpqua Oregon, for the crimes of DUII-alcohol, and Reckless Driving into Lane County Circuit Court. At approximately 2:50 p.m. on December 30th, a westbound Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) fish delivery tanker driving on highway 126E was loaded with 11,000 Chinook salmon smolts and water and headed to the Row River near Cottage Grove where they were to be released. The fish were being transferred as a result of low water concerns at McKenzie Hatchery caused by floodgate malfunctions at Leaburg Dam, which provides water to the hatchery.
