Savage Rapids Dam (Coffer Dam sloughs away)

savage-rapids-5-4 May 4th. 2009 AM.  I was driving by the Savage Rapid Dam This morning and noticed s0mething just didn’t look right.  This is what I saw. The Coffer dam built out of rock and sand has a spot where the turbulent water has cause some of it to slough away. It will be interesting to see what happens next. The Spring Chinook are just getting started on their migration up the Rogue River. I would hate to see them have to hold up the run again.
