The Kitsap Sun reported on this fall’s expected fish returns to Kitsap’s watersheds with the inundation of the November rain storms.
From the story:
Recent rains are bringing forth a surge of chum and coho salmon into streams across the Kitsap Peninsula.
With salmon on the move, this weekend might be a good time for local residents and out-of-town visitors to enjoy the natural wonders of salmon, being careful not to disturb their migration, experts say.
“This will definitely be a good weekend to look,” said Jon Oleyar, a biologist for the Suquamish Tribe who has the unusual job of walking streams to count fish on the east side of Kitsap County.
“The water is running off in a big way right now,” Oleyar said Tuesday. “By this weekend, every stream should have at least something in it.”
