Spawning Salmon Seen in Auburn Ravine Today, December 7, 2012, in Lincoln, CA

I saw 3 salmon downstream from the NID gauging station.

One was in the tail out area below the last downstream concrete section of the fish ladder.

Just about 50 yards downstream from there, there was a breeding pair in the side channel nearest the southern bank were the stream splits.

The pair was digging a redd.

AI did not get any good pictures because I did not have a polarizing filter with me.
ll were quite dark and all had some fungus on them.
