Smith-Root provided the electronics for this barrier to divert migrating fish into a side trap for sorting.
Location:Swan Valley, Idaho
Following the success of the Palisades Creek and Pine Creek barriers, Idaho Fish and Game designed a third barrier for Rainey Creek in the same area. Its purpose is to divert all fish into a side trap so that non-native rainbow trout can be separated from the native cutthroat. Unlike the earlier two barriers, Rainey Creek Barrier is an entirely new structure located on a slow-flowing flood plain.
There are six U-shaped steel flat bar electrodes in grooves in the deck and side walls.
