September 28-Chinook

Chinook or king salmon returned to the Deschutes River and the Tumwater fish hatchery this month. I stopped by Tumwater Falls this evening. The light was flat and the small fish were jumping the falls. The big ones - some close to 3 feet long - were mostly back in the hatchery.

I will head there later this week now that the sun is returning. In the meantime, photographs from the past four years can be found in my Fauna gallery.

Tumwater Falls is always a wonderful respite any time of year. Each season brings something special. Tumwater Falls Park is located just off I-5 below the former Olympia brewery.
