Fish need water, and the Klamath River does not have a lot of it, especially in drought years.
So the Hoopa Valley Tribe filed suit against the federal government over the summer, to force the feds to release more water into the river. The tribe says the government violates the Endangered Species Act in its current management of river flows.
Supporters and opponents of the suit break along the usual lines. The Klamath Water Users Association says the suit unfairly targets farmers.
The Karuk Tribe stands in favor of moves to provide better habitat for fish.
