Dozen+ Chum Salmon Seen in Byrne Ck

Despite the rain and somewhat poor visibility, I went on a spawner patrol on Byrne Creek in SE #Burnaby, and was rewarded by seeing over a dozen chum. It was also exciting to see them moving up into the lower ravine.

Near the stop log in the sediment pond. The area looks like a huge extended redd from the upper end of the pond into the lower end of the culvert

You can see the huge area of disturbed gravel and cobble. Lots of spawning action!
