Brian Luke, a biologist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District, places recently tagged steelhead trout into an observation tank March 25, 2013, at Coleman National Fish Hatchery in Anderson, Calif. Luke and other researchers will study the behavior of 250 steelhead trout and late-fall Chinook salmon juveniles over a 75-mile stretch of the Sacramento River in order to better evaluate habitat restoration work under the Sacramento River Bank Protection Project, a joint flood risk reduction effort between the district and the state's California Central Valley Flood Protection Board to repair river bank erosion along the Sacramento River and its tributaries.
