A female Chum Salmon guarding it's spawning bed in the crystal clear waters of the Fishing Branch River. The chum salmon run this year is expected to be around 35,000.

In 1986, the first salmon count on the Fishing Branch River was over 350,000 fish. The mismanagement of the salmon has lead to runs as low as 9,000 fish.
