Salmon

Lagunitas Creek in Marin County is a “must see” destination for salmon. They have arrived. Here’s a really lousy picture of one I took today. It’s dark in there and I don’t have a 600mm f/2.8 lens so it was a difficult shot. This one was hand held at 1/10 sec. You can see a better shot, and read about tours on the SFgate website.

BTW, the docent was incredibly informative and helpful. I recommend a trip to see the salmon. It’s a great experience. Here’s the location, I think. (Didn’t have my GPS receiver on.)

Later — Today’s Chronicle has a front page story about the salmon. I might disagree with the statment, in the article, that says ” Dozens of coho salmon have been spotted.” According to the docent yesterday, they are aware of six salmon in that area of the creek. But the Chron may be referring to all of Marin. Who knows?
