Salmon in Sonoma Creek, Part II

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Check out these Chinook salmon spawning in upper Sonoma Creek! Sent in by Ian Morrison, who took the video three days ago at his creek-side home, the footage shows a female and male salmon on a “redd” or nest, with another hanger on to the left. Several more Chinooks have been seen swimming far up Sonoma Creek with increased flow caused by the early rains.
