SEATTLE, WA - For those who track the health and well-being of fish in this region, Columbia River dams are known as "fish killers." But in fact the deadliest dam isn't a dam at all, it's a 76-mile reservoir that pools behind a dam east of The Dalles, Oregon. Last week, KPLU's Austin Jenkins explored the hidden history of the Columbia River by kayak. In today's part II of our series Roll on Columbia, KPLU's Anna King takes a closer look at the John Day reservoir.
