Field Notes: Spawner surveys are off to a good start this fall!

Kelly here, Skagit Fisheries current Washington Service Corps IP. I had the great opportunity last Wednesday November 25 to tag along with Kyle, one of our friendly field staff, on a spawner survey of Marblemount Slough. Let me tell you, THE CHUM ARE HERE! We saw some spectacular fish including about a meter long male. The eagles were also very intrigued by the salmon. We saw some beautiful adult and juvenile eagles watching and sharing the water with us.
