Baby salmon trickle back to Russian River waterways after a long absence

Published Wednesday March 15

…about a mile up, there was a dam. First built in the early 1900s in a narrow steep-sided canyon,…

After an absence of more than a 10 years a trickle of salmon are finally finding their way back to Sonoma County streams, thanks to private landowners and a coalition of conservationists.

Roughly 22 million years ago, the fish we know as salmon evolved the difficult biology they needed to commute between inland freshwater streams and the open salty ocean. Thus began one of the most remarkable life cycle journeys known on the planet.

And that paleo-Russian River has been the salmon’s home ever since.

Unless, of course, they meet a dam.
