Thread: Salcha River Salmon Counter Location

    Unhappy Salcha River Salmon Counter Location

    Where are the salmon being counted on the Salcha River? It seems to have changed from year to year...used to be from the Rich bridge. Reason I ask is because I've seem some return numbers on Chums, but the catch rate and visual sightings on the river don't support the numbers shown. Anyone have input? Maybe the Chums are hiding???

    Default Counter

    The counter station is located about 1/2 upstream from the bridge. They only count 20 minutes out of every hour. If you drive to the boat ramp area take the dirt road to the right that follows the river, the counters have a tower that overlooks a strip of white plastic that is in the river. EZ to find

    Well, I'll keep looking for those chums for the next week or so, and that should be about it.....
