Upper and Lower Bennett Dams are located southeast of the town of Stayton on the North Santiam River. Upper Bennett Dam is on the south side of Stayton Island and Lower Bennett Dam is on the north side.

Fish passage structures and video cameras are installed at each dam. Review of the video feed allows an ODFW employee to count the number and species of fish making their way upstream.
