Along the coast of Northern California, nearly every stream and creek once had its own migratory population of coho salmon. Their return each winter, once as reliable as the next train or bus, now happens in fewer and fewer places each year. Where the fish do return, it’s often thanks to dedicated volunteers working to keep creeks healthy enough for our region’s most charismatic nomads.

Yes, the silver and pink flashers are working their way up Marin County creeks to spawn. Paola Bouley, conservation director for the Salmon Protection and Watershed Network (SPAWN), reported seeing coho spawners on October 21, 2009. The group is beginning its tenth year of naturalist-led creek walks on what’s now our state’s largest remaining coho run, so now’s the time to see the salmon migrating upstream.
