say guys, have some mercy...  Please consider posting images on the web for individual downloads, this took up a lot of time to upload in my hotel room over the phone line.

Thanks for the info though..

Very Interesting!

An adult Chum salmon was trapped in our lower Battle Creek rotary screw
trap on Feb 14, 2006. The fish was still alive in the trap and released

It was the first time one had been observed from the juvenile traps, since
1998 (we rarely capture adults, with the exception of carcasses or in this
case an almost carcass).

Bill Brock was good enough to forward these impressive pictures of two Chum
Salmon captured at the Willow Creek weir – pictures courtesy of Wade
Sinnen.  First I’ve ever seen of the species.
