Restoring Fish Runs Above PGE's Deschutes River Dams


For the first time in 40 years, salmon and steelhead could soon be swimming their way down the Metolius, Crooked and upper Deschutes Rivers as a result of new equipment now in advanced stages of construction.


Fish passage around the Pelton and Round Butte dams on the Deschutes River will be achieved through
a 273-foot underwater tower and fish collection station.



The sorted fish will have to be trucked around the dam to continue their journey to the Columbia and trucked back around when they return to spawn.

Our vision was to design a fishing lure that utilizes a Microcomputer, 14 super-bright LED lights and a digital sound system.

Fishing with a Disco Ball Part Deux


Remember our post Fool A Fisherman?  

They're baaaack, this time in Yahoo News.

Called Fool-a-Fish, it comes in a bottle that sprays titanium dioxide on fishing lures and bait. The chemical lights up the watery depths like a disco ball, luring fish from half a mile away.   LINK

Following the huge success of the cute iDog as an accessory for iPod freaks, Sega presents the ifish. It moves in fishy ways when you play music for it. And it creates sounds, lighting effects and acts as a loudspeaker when connected to a digital audio device.
