Lots of Salmon to View at Carkeek Park Salmon Festival
The annual day after Thanksgiving salmon festival at Carkeek Park was well attended by humans and salmon. (Click on pictures for larger view.)
Each year in late winter salmon fry are released in Venema Creek, and three to five years later the adult salmon return to Piper’s Creek and Venema Creek. The number of salmon returning this year was higher than in some recent years, to the delight of the humans who came to view them.
