Officials OK Fish Salvage in Platte River

Officials have authorized fish salvage from the Platte River in Buffalo County to its confluence with the Loup River in Platte County.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will allow the harvest of stranded fish of all species except the pallid sturgeon. The salvage runs from Saturday through the end of July.

Officials say localized fish die-offs are occurring because of low water flows and high water temperatures.

The salvage area does not include the north channel of the Platte River from Kearney to Shelton. That serves as a refuge and receives return flows from a canal.

The approved methods of harvest still require a permit.
