Chinook Salmon returning to Tumwater Falls Hatchery

Chinook Salmon returning to Tumwater Falls Hatchery
September 16, 2019

A sure sign of Fall in the South Sound region is the sight of Chinook salmon at Tumwater Falls Park. After making their way from Puget Sound and across Capitol Lake, the fish are making their final journey up to the top of Tumwater Falls and the WDFW fish hatchery. 

Although there are a series of fish ladders along this stretch of the Deschutes River, many intrepid fish prefer to try their luck with the falls. From the lake, the river climbs 82 feet, with the tallest waterfall measuring about 25 feet. 

On Saturday October 5, Stream Team will host the Return of the Chinook Celebration at Tumwater Falls Park.
