Learn to Identify Fall Chinook Reds


Zombie Apocalypse hits the west side rivers



Every fall our local streams fill up with hundreds to thousands of fall chinook. By this time, they are pretty well beat up, and in the process of spawning. While not a fish you want to target at this point, it is pretty cool to take a few minutes to take a break from chasing steelhead and watch mother nature in action. Every trip out I have been having lunch near a group of spawning fish and watching them on the reds chasing each other around, turning on thier sides and make future runs of native fish.



A bright spot in the middle of the brown/green river bottom is a Salmon red. Learn to identify them and avoid walking through them.
