This American eel was spotted trying to move up the diversion channel while the test flows were being conducted. The eel was very persistent and tried many times to get upstream, even slithering out of the water trying to find a better path. Ultimately he disappeared back downstream. But when our work is done, for the first time in centuries eels will be able to freely move upstream in search of food.
