I am the Dammed Klamath River

I am trapped because a dam is in the way.
I go nowhere because a dam is in the way.
I am not free because a dam is in the way.
I have been dammed for a long time.
I know the way of the current.
I know the way of the salmon.
I know the way of the sturgeon.
I know I am stuck in a dam.
I know I will be free someday because people are trying to take down the dam.
