Kodiak Soil and Water Conservation staff attempted cleaning the salmon stream's culver, which runs under Rezanof Drive East, two weeks ago, but could barely budge the logjam. Dave Kaplan says the state used heavy equipment to get the job done, and just in time, as salmon are starting to return to spawn. Dave Kaplan/KSWCD photo
