When most field studies slow down for a few months during this time of year, the marking program is in full swing. They are currently PIT tagging 52,000 spring Chinook salmon and 1500 steelhead at Dworshak National Fish Hatchery in Idaho until January 12th. The following week, they head to Eagle Creek NFH near Estacada, Oregon to PIT tag 10,000 coho salmon. Next stop takes the crew to Little White Salmon NFH to PIT tag 15,000 spring Chinook salmon and 40,000 White River spring Chinook salmon. Visitors are always welcome!
