Salmon are heading up Issaquah Creek to spawn, and staff and volunteers at Issaquah Salmon Hatchery are at work, too, collecting fish for their eggs and milt. It’s about a 42-mile journey for the salmon from the Ballard Locks to the hatchery, and takes six to eight weeks as they spend time in Lake Washington. Read more here about how to visit, or volunteer at, the hatchery. Read here for more about Issaquah’s annual Salmon Days, this Saturday and Sunday.
