Spawning salmon in McAleer Creek

McAleer Creek (salmon not visible in this photo)

On Oct 2, 1999, we spotted a salmon spawning in McAleer Creek, as it flows through Blue Heron Park. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

Until this point, the salmon was stationary in this small eddy, when...suddenly it decided to swim upstream, under a fallen tree branch.


Visit NOAA's West Coast Salmon site to find out what kind of salmon it was.

Visit KCTS (Channel 9)'s Save Our Salmon site for an "extensive look at the
Salmon crisis in the Pacific Northwest" (They're producing a series of 12 documentary stories on this topic, to be aired sometime soon.)
