Brian Johnson tips a giant red band trout from his net into a bucket in a deep hole in the north channel of the Spokane River Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2011. Johnson works for EES Consulting, which is a contractor on the Avista Utilities project to install a series of concrete weirs, shaped and camouflaged to blend into the rocky landscape, that will reroute the flow pattern of water through river channels in downtown Spokane. The result will be a more natural flow through a series of pools and away from several man-made alterations to the river channels. The changes are part of the relicensing agreements for Avista’s dams on the Spokane River. The crew from EES was removing the fish from pools being pumped dry before work begins nearby.
