Huge Salmon returns expected on Klamath/Sac in 2012

From the San Francisco Chronicle….

The council’s experts said there are 820,000 chinook in the ocean now preparing to return to the Sacramento River system to lay eggs next fall.

Another 1.6 million chinook from the Klamath River are out there, according to the estimates – one of the largest populations of salmon on record.
