Thousands of Chinook and a few hundred Coho salmon are returning to Issaquah Creek during the annual fall migration. More than 1,000,000 eggs from each species will be harvested at the hatchery. Most of the Chinook are weighing between 10 and 12-pounds and here they're waiting for the gates to the fish ladder to be raised so they can continue their journey and complete their life cycle.
