BEND, Ore. -
As thousands of fish die in the Deschutes River, a few thousand more were saved during this week's multi-day effort that's becoming a frustrating annual event for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and volunteers.

"We salvage as many fish as we can out of the side channel and put them back into the main stem," said Assistant District Fish Biologist Erik Moberly.
