Scale Bar: Mildly Wet
A warming, dry week with several days in the 70s.  ETo was 0.39” with only 0.19” of rain. Many migrating birds passing through, offering lots of singing. A local resident with what I call the Yard of a Thousand Poppies is in full bloom and a delight to pass by every day. This week the California Fish and Wildlife released almost 500,000 salmon into the Klamath River, just below the old Iron Gate Dam. 90,000 fall coho yearlings and 400,000 fall Chinook fry entered the now free-flowing Klamath, and when they return they will be the first of what is planned to be many to repopulate the river under the new conditions. Later this spring another release of 1.75M fall Chinook smolts is planned. All of the Native American tribes participated, knowing the river will soon become like the
river their ancestors once knew.
