This is one persistent coho

Joe Hymer, a fish biologist with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, just passed along this little tidbit about a coho salmon in today’s Tacoma Power Cowlitz fish report.

Last week, Tacoma Power recovered 726 summer-run steelhead, 360 spring chinook adults, 51 jacks, 107 mini-jacks and one sockeye salmon during five days of operation at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery separator.

It turns out the sockeye salmon was the same fish that returned to the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery separator three times last week.  The fish was recycled downstream to the Massey Bar boat launch on the Cowlitz River.

There is no word on whether the fish is now on a first name basis with the Tacoma Power employees.
