Kelly Stonum at the Nisqually Valley News reports on the Nisqually winter chum run and the annual event to celebrate habitat restoration in Roy:

Chum salmon didn’t disappoint the public for their premiere appearance at Roy City Park.

Several salmon were spotted at the street crossing, within walking distance from the park during the Roy Salmon Homecoming, Saturday, Jan. 24.

“It (the number of salmon) is variable from year to year,” said Jeanette Dorner, Salmon Recovery Program manager for the Nisqually Tribe.

“It’s a decent run.”
