The Hyde Creek Watershed Society is located in Port Coquitlam, B.C. This volunteer organization operates a small Salmon Hatchery and provides Educational Programs for local schools as well as an annual Salmon Festival. With few exceptions, the images appearing in this blog are mine as is the blog.
COHO COMING BACK
For the first time in the nine years that I have volunteered at the little fish hatchery on Hyde Creek, the Coho salmon have come back to spawn in very big numbers. It is wonderful to see so many of the fish that we have tried to bring back to the creek coming home to fill the creek.
