Another week down and the 2021 Sac River salmon just keep coming!  What a great year we're having, and by the looks of the things, its going to continue through December with our late fall Kings this year.  Most years we will see a significant slow down in the Corning area around the 3rd week of September, but we're seeing some new salmon still showing daily down there.  Thats a good indicator of whats to come for us in the Anderson area over the next few weeks.  Lots of Kings have already moved up into Battle Creek from the Barge Hole and are making their way into Coleman Fish Hatchery where staff there will be beginning their egg take early next week.  Coleman Hatchery is open to the public during the salmon spawning season, and having been there myself, I must say its a really fun field trip for the whole family.  Make sure to check the hours they will be open so you don't make the drive out there only to find that they are not spawning salmon when you arrive.  This is one of those years you don't want to miss checking out the Coleman Hatchery fall salmon return!
