Salmon Sighting on Auburn Ravine at 11:30 AM Today Downstream from Hemphill Dam near Lincoln, CA

Three Feet Long Salmon Sighing in Auburn Ravine, 11:30 am, Today, Saturday, December 8, 2012, Quarter Mile Downstream from Hemphill Dam near Turkey Creek Golf Course,

Ramon Gonzalez and Gary Crowder of TCGC and I were exploring Auburn Ravine while repairing fences on Turkey Creek property. I was walking downstream near a large pool. They were upstream and spooked a 3 feet Chinook salmon that swam right by me downstream into the deep pool. Ramon had a camera but did not see or get a pic of the salmon. Salmon had white markings of deterioration on his dorsal fin.

Salmon are still spawning in the Auburn Ravine thanks to NID's fish ladder in Lincoln
