Mud Snails in Oregon's Deschutes

October 26, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

The presence of New Zealand Mud Snails in the lower Deschutes River was recently confirmed by Portland State University’s (PSU) Center for Lakes and Reservoirs, “documenting snails at Heritage Landing at Deschutes River State Park and forty miles upriver outside Maupin, a popular fly-fishing and rafting destination. This is the first recorded presence of NZMS in this important recreational area.” On GlendaleOregonNews.com.
