Want a good spot to watch migrating salmon this fall? Greer Maier, Science Program Manager, took this picture this past weekend from the pedestrian bridge over the Wenatchee River at Confluence State Park. In it you can see of hundreds of adult coho and summer Chinook (“King”) salmon in the river below. The bridge is easy to get to with young kids and provides a great vantage point for watching fish. October represents the tail end of the Chinook (“King”) salmon migration and the peak of the coho migration into the Wenatchee River.
