Add comment on:American River hatchery salmon numbers improve over last year
Although the hatchery counts are up from last year, the question remains whether the numbers of wild and naturally spawning fish are on the upswing also. Department of Fish and Game crews will be doing salmon carcass surveys on the American, Feather, Sacramento and Mokelumne rivers through December to record the number of salmon that naturally spawned in the river, so we probably won't find out until January how well wild and naturally spawning chinooks fared on the Central Valley rivers.
