Super Early Sockeye
While overzealous Columbia River anglers are watching the Bonneville Dam counts for the first spring chinook of 2015, something else has been counted: a chrome-bright sockeye salmon.
A counter at Bonneville reported the 20-inch-long sockeye came through the dam at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Sockeye normally do not arrive until May and peak in June.
This is either the third or fourth year in a row an early-bird sockeye has been noted at Bonneville.
