Chinook numbers down from last year in Russian River

Jan 29, 2014

Each fall and winter the Sonoma County Water Agency tracks chinook salmon returning to the Russian River watershed. Water Agency spokeswoman Ann DuBay says the 2013-14 season is poorer than last year, owing, in part, to a lack of rain. The agency is requesting residents near the Russian River's headwaters conserve water to aid the returning fish.
