Hood River Salmon Restoration
Laura Street, fisheries biology aide with ODFW checks a fish for an electronic tag as part of the data collection process on July 30, 2013 in Parkdale, Ore. The numbers are small, but estimated returns of wild chinook topped 400 in 2012, up from a low of 20 in 1999. Estimated returns of hatchery fish this year, about 1,100 to date, are relatively strong, even compared with the much bigger Deschutes River, says Mark Fritsch, project implementation manager for the Northwest Power and Conservation Council.
