Klamath Salmon Media Collaborative
Forks of Salmon, CA - Scientists and Conservationists were shocked last week to find out that the Salmon River fall Chinook run had dipped even lower than the previous year’s record low. Only an estimated 320 fall Chinook returned to the Salmon River according to the California Dept. of Fish and Game (CDFG). CDFG has counts for spawning fall Chinook that go back 27 years to 1978. A large tributary to the Klamath, the Salmon River had an all time low in 2004 with a run of 626 fall Chinook. Before that the record low had stood at 780 in 1999, as shown in the chart below.
