Dead Fish Found on Willamette River

WaterEUGENE, Ore. — An abnormal amount of dead fish have been found on the Willamette River.

Authorities say the fish have been found at the confluence of the mill race and the Willamette River at Alton Baker Park.

They’re advising people to stay out of the water from Island Park, down to Alton Baker until more information becomes available.

The Department of Environmental Quality says it’s not clear what caused the deaths, and you should not eat the dead fish or fish caught from the river in those areas.
