Salmon fall run in Mokelumne River sets 80-year record

More fall-run Chinook salmon are returning to spawn in the Mokelumne River this year than in any year since 1940, when wildlife officials first began tracking the population, according to the East Bay Municipal Utility District. EBMUD officials announced Thursday that more than 20,000 fish have so far returned to the river to complete their life cycle. “This year’s historic return highlights EBMUD’s longstanding collaboration in the region and our deep commitment to sustaining this vital fish hatchery and protecting the river’s habitat,” said EBMUD board president Andy Katz.
