...and the water is the easy part. After four years of evading a variety of predators in the river (going down as fry and up as adults) and at sea (Orcas, sea lions etc.) these Coho Salmon have made it back to the middle reaches of the river where they hatched. Their predators are for the most part behind them...now they just have to fight their way up river to the spawning grounds. The action takes place in the Sol Duc river of Olympic National Park.
Thanks for looking.
