Dorothy Chambers from the Colquitz Salmonoid Stewardship and Education Society, nets a big one while emptying the fish trap in Coquitz Creek.
Salmonoid Stewardship and Education Society has counted more than 1,000 fish entering Colquitz Creek so far this year, far surpassing any previous counts over the past decade. A typical year might see 300 coho enter the creek between October and December.
The group uses the trap to count fish, mainly coho and sends them on their way upstream to spawn.

Sunday Oct. 26 2014 Colquitz River fish fence
Five hours on the Colquitz today.
Started out in slamming rain, with many visitors in rain slickers, braving the weather and delighted to see 21 salmon hauled.
By 2:00 pm the sun was shining, it was warm and the holding pen was full.
Many visitors came by and we were there until 6:00pm releasing fish !
Dorothy, and the fish team !!
