A Festival That Remains To Be Celebrated

Autumn rains send the Skokomish river across a local highway. Local news can be counted on to broadcast fresh footage of salmon swimming across the road on the way to their spawning grounds.  I’d like to see a charitable betting pool to pick the date that the first fish crosses the road, and I’d like to see a roadside or on-line gathering, with live music, to cheer the fish on their way to the next generation.

One question remains to be resolved: can one legally keep and eat a road kill salmon, or must it be donated to the prison system, like road kill venison? 

There’s a surprising lack of CC images of the fish crossing, but YouTube has good footage.
