Nason Creek Weir. Many of the fish hauled by tank truck from Rock Island Dam fish collectors were placed in Nason Creek for subsequent spawning. This weir across the creek was installed to prevent these adult spawners from dropping back down the creek into the Columbia River and resuming their original migration route.
