UMATILLA, OREGON - JUNE 7: A chinook salmon, along with a school of shad, pass through the viewing room at McNary Lock and Dam on the Columbia River, June 7, 2005 near Umatilla, Oregon. In late May 2005, a federal judge in Portland, Oregon rejected the Bush administration's $6 billion plan to improve dams on the lower Snake River and Columbia River ruling it failed to protect threatened and endangered salmon under the Endangered Species Act. An estimated 53,000 chinook salmon have passed through the two fish ladders at McNary to date in 2005. (Photo by Jeff T. Green/Getty Images)
