STREAMS -- Hangman Creek used to produce 1,000 fish a day for Nez Perce Indians during the salmon spawning runs.
Nowadays, the stream that merges with the Spokane River near downtown Spokane is a shadow of its former grandeur and hospitality to fish.
Even if the downstream dams were gone, Hangman Creek wouldn't invite many salmon and trout to spawn.
The Spokesman-Review reported on the issues in June.
This new video, produced locally and funded in part by the Washington Department of Ecology, launches a 10-minute journey down the stream to learn from experts what's gone wrong and what can be done to restore it for fish, wildlife and us.
