Wanted: John Day Chinook survey volunteers!

Good day,
We have, unfortunately, had another early start to the Chinook spawning survey effort this year. The hot weather and low stream flows proved too much for some of the Chinook holding in the Middle Fork John Day and we recovered 74 pre-spawn mortalities this month. So, fingers and fins crossed that the hottest days have passed and we find plenty of spawning fish in September.
