AEN is a permanent PIT tag interrogation site on Aeneas Creek. Aeneas Creek enters the Okanogan River at RKM 85.3, approximately 6.7 km down river from the town of Tonasket, WA. The AEN site is located approximately 0.2 km upstream from the confluence of the Okanogan River. The site consists of a single 10 foot antenna anchored upright for pass-through detection. The antenna spans the wetted width of the channel at base flow. When installed in 2014 AEN was equipped with an Allflex RM 310 reader and an Acumen Data logger powered by batteries. In August 2018, the site was updated with a 10 foot HDPE antenna, IS1001 reader, and solar panels to provide power to the 12V battery bank.
