You will see in this short video that salmon have no problem with dredge holes in the river. In fact, they are drawn to them because of the cooler water temperatures and the slower river current. The loosening of the packed river gravels aids in the spawning process as well. A lot of fish mill around the dredge while it is operating because they like to eat the tasty morsels that are being stirred up by the dredge production.
