Hello Salmon Enhancement Community. Just a quick update to let you all know that there has been a wave of Chinook come into Lang Creek over the last 24hrs. There is now over 1300 Chinook that have returned and 2300 Coho. Pink numbers are at 1400. Our crews have been working around the clock to insure the fish safe passage and to maintain accurate fish counts.
The brood facility is coming up to full carrying capacity now and so the station is only open when we are sorting fish. The fish collected for brood stock are calmest when kept in the dark.
There is lots to see at Lang Creek with salmon in the river and spawning channel. We look forward to seeing you and would like to extend a big thank-you to all of our volunteers that have been helping sort fish.
