Bonneville Chinook Numbers
by Henry Miller
On Monday, 67,521 fall Chinook passed through the ladder at Bonneville Dam, most since first count after dam built in 1938.
Sunday's record of 67,024 lasted just a day.
The previous one-day high had been 63,870 set Sept. 9, 2013.
Tuesday was no slouch, either, with 45,809 going through the ladder.
That's, wait for it, 180,354 in three days.
Numbers were supplies by the Northwestern Division of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Bonneville Power Administration.
