Endangered sockeye salmon beat projections in Columbia River. AP. Idaho Statesman.
After the collapse of the spring chinook salmon run into the Sacramento River this year, there was fear it would be general; but the sockeye salmon run bound for interior Oregon, Washington, and Idaho is 6 times that of last year.
There are numerous species of salmon and runs of those species. In many years some do well and others not. In others almost all are up or down.
