Salmon River Fish Barrier & and Fish Counting Site

It is amazing what happens in the area that we may not be aware of. This is a fish barrier and holding pen at a farm in Silver Creek. The farmer, Eugene Puetz, takes the time every single day to check this holding pen, net the fish, count and identify each one. And gently remove them from the net so they can continue on their journey. From here they swim on to their home riverbed to spawn and die. Photos by Hugh Tyson.
