On August 17th Nestucca Angler Volunteers with ODFW staff released 100,000 Fall Chinook smolt into the Nestucca river.
The fish were healthy and of size, ready to make their migration down river into the tidewater. They will stage themselves in the bay before heading out to the ocean.
Special thanks to all the feeders that volunteered their time. Also, hats off to the ODFW District office and Cedar Creek Hatchery staff.
