More fish!

It seems the small run of Pink Salmon has run it’s course in Noons……..we haven’t seen any for over a week now.  BUT – our regulars are starting to show up…..Coho and Chum Salmon have now been spotted both at the mouth of the creek and further up.

A male / female pair of Chum were spotted spawning on October 13 near the footbridge over the creek leading to the Rec Centre……….see the video link below.  The next day they were gone.

We have also had some Coho enter our hatchery side-channel.  These were netted on October 13 from the flume under the trail outside the hatchery and placed in our broodstock tanks awaiting their ‘ripening’ before we harvest their eggs and milt (sperm).

Check out the photos and video link below………………
