Coho Salmon numbers dropping in Shasta and Scott Rivers
According to reports collected by Cal DFW, a low amount of Coho Salmon, age 0+ and 1+, have been trapped this spring while exiting the Shasta River Basin and Scott River. … Felice Pace, the Water Chair of the North Group Redwood Chapter Sierra Club, says … the Shasta and Scott Rivers should be top producers of Klamath River Coho Salmon, but links that poor regulated irrigation is preventing the salmon to reach the best spawning grounds and is killing juvenile Coho Salmon before they can move out of the Klamath River.
