Spring chinook salmon spend 1 or more years in fresh water before migrating to. sea and return after 1 to 4 years in spring or early summer prior to spawning in the fall. Healey, Early male maturation sexual maturation at a younger age than that of females occurs in wild spring chinook salmon but appears to be much more common To examine this late-stage mortality hypothesis, we examined diagnostic evidence of predation on large (57– cm fork length) Chinook salmon (n = 33) from depth, temperature, and light records Relationship between northeastern Bering Sea juvenile Chinook salmon length and proportion of adults maturing as age-3 and age-4 ("jacks") from those cohorts for total Yukon River (black circles   Chinook salmon are anadromous fish, which means they can live in both fresh and saltwater. Chinook salmon have a relatively complex life history that includes spawning and juvenile rearing in rivers followed by migrating to saltwater to feed, grow, and mature before returning to freshwater to ://

Central Valley spring-run Chinook salmon were listed as threatened on J (70 FR ). This ESU consists of spring-run Chinook salmon occurring in the Sacramento River :// The finding that Chinook salmon productivity dynamics covary at the regional scale is consistent with previous studies on other species of Pacific salmon showing that correlations in survival indices of pink (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha), chum (Oncorhynchus keta), and sockeye (Oncorhynchus nerka) salmon tend to be higher at smaller distances The good news is that first light isn’t your only chance. Tide changes during the day also spur Chinook salmon feeding activity, as does the day’s second low-light “magic hour,” just before dark. “If you don’t score during the morning bite, your best shot at getting Chinook to bite is fishing the tide and current change,” says 2 days ago  Maturing Chinook and Coho salmon returning to the Salmon River usually begin to stage off the Salmon River mouth in late August.

  Progeny of brood chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) from the Chickamin and Unuk rivers in southeastern Alaska were reared to the smolt stage in a hatchery km northwest of their natal fingerlings, the fish were separated into eight groups to test the effect of stock, time of release, smolt size at release, and culture salinity on marine survival and rates of early The goal of this study was to describe changes in the pituitary-testis axis during the onset of puberty in male chinook salmon and during seasonal periods when growth affects the proportion of fish maturing in For fall chinook salmon, release is done after 90 days of rearing; spring chinook, 12 – 18 months; and coho are released after about 14 months. Releasing fish is carefully planned to avoid interaction and competition with the wild fish already in the stream, river, or :// Where: Outfitted for approximately miles of Salmon River Spin or Fly – Fishing Gear: All rods and fishing tackle provided by your guide, personal gear welcome Trip Length: Varies daily 5 to 10 miles changes any given day depending on the salmon run Departure Time: Early morning, between and am depending on water temperatures and section of river that you and your guide will be
