Where Have All the Sockeye Salmon Gone?

May 24 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

free with donations accepted

Sockeye salmon are the first and largest run of the season at the Ballard Locks. Last year was a historic low count for the Sockeye and this year is forecast to be even lower. What is going on and is there anything we can do?

Roger Urbaniak, Salmon Naturalist, has over 20 years of experience working with the salmon fisheries on Lake Washington and has given talks on this subject many times to leading sport fishing groups. Roger will help explain what is happening and discuss some ideas on how to save the Sockeye fishery and even perhaps reopen the angling season on Lake Washington.
