Autumn Salmon Run on the American River 2014


Hello Folks,
right now as I write the ending is coming to the final days of the Salmon run along the American River up to the Nimbus Dam.
I  bike along this pass quite often and was lucky enough to have captured some images and video of this wonderful event. One passer bye mentioned that the run looks pretty small but I found it a very fascinating event of female salmon fighting for spots with other female salmon and then watch the even larger male fish coming in to fight over the right to fertilize the new eggs.


phy but pretty interesting all the same.
