Goodbye Chums 2014

A great day was had at Bell-Irving Hatchery during the annual springtime chum salmon fry release tradition.

First fry release of the day.

Feeding time!
The puppet show station was popular.

Coho smolts, clearly getting excited about their pending trip to the Pacific.
This is what all the fuss is about.
Releasing fry is on everyone's bucket list.
