Sockeye smolts released

Hundreds of sockeye salmon smolts were released May 9 into the Redfish Lake Outlet. About 800 of the smolts were raised in the NOAA Fisheries Seattle-area facility. The remainder were raised at the Sawtooth Hatchery. We took 135 photo Thursday as the smolts were being loaded and released.  We put together 30 of those pictures into a Facebook album. Each photo is captioned to tell the story.  You can click the link below to view the album.  You do not need a Facebook account to view the album.  (The photo above is a screen shot of the album collage.)
