The first salmon of the season made an early appearance on July 11! The female chinook successfully made it over the lowered weir after several attempts. The following week, FISH summer campers were lucky enough to see a male chinook make it upstream as well!
Fish at the Ballard Locks:
FISH Docents have begun their weekly visit to the Ballard Locks! Every Sunday in August, volunteers educate the public on the chinook salmon entering the fish ladder on their way back to the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery!
