For, im Eric Granstrom. Forbthise of you who's watching our Facebook page, hopefully you can see the video of what's before me. For those listening to the radio report let me describe it. I'm along Highway 2 West of Leavenworth in Tumwater Canyon, downstream from Tumwater Campground. And below me Wenatchee River in a shallow stretch I see hundreds and hundreds of dark figures splashing about. These are sockeye salmon have made their fall return after a 3-to-4 year cycle out to the Pacific Ocean up over nine dams on the Columbia River and the Tumwater Dam here on the Wenatchee River to finally return home to their spawning beds. If you have a child or a grandchild, now is the time to bring them up Tumwater Canyon to see the colors. Not only the colors on the hillsides as the leaves change, but the colors of these fish as they become bright red during their spawning season. Until next time, Good Fishing!
