Kitsap dry weather impacts salmon spawning season

Highlights and Sticky Notes:Chico Creek, which once welcomed home 30,000 salmon each fall, will be lucky to have 10,000 return this year, Oleyar said, and low flows have forced fish to concentrate in the main channel instead of dispersing into spawning habitat higher in the watershed. Lost Creek, an upper tributary of Chico, has had about 100 fish when it would usually have thousands.Tags: no_tagby: ndcarter
