Coho Smolts head out to the ocean

50,000 Coho smolts. Returned to the Serpentine River. Smolts are just over a year old and will head directly to the ocean. Inch creek takes a portion of our Coho eggs and raise them to smolt stage for us. Usually we disperse these babies throughout the Serpentine rivershed and only a portion are released at the Tynehead hatchery- primarily at our annual salmon send off. Unfortunately, COVID changed that this year. So see how many you can count in this footage!
