Chehalis River Underwater Cam - Discussion, Observation, Screenshots & Videos

Link to the Cam

2011/2012 Discussion thread

This thread is set up to provide a place to talk about things directly related to what's happening under the water in the spawning channel, as viewed by our cam at the entrance to the Chehalis Fish Hatchery.

Because this camera may be watched by school classes and we encourage children to visit the forum to learn about eagles and the other wildlife whose life cycles are linked to theirs - like salmon - we will be following a strict interpretation of our basic "no obscenity" rule, and we would appreciate your not using even the mild expletives and descriptions of bodily functions - gosh and golly are permitted - please consider some mythical maiden aunt or uncle looking at the forum with their great niece or nephew before using anything stronger.

"Poop" is an allowed word when referring to something done by an eaglet. We know that some words which describe bodily functions are also used as casual slang in some areas - but because they are considered far more impolite in some regions than others, we may change them to family-friendly alternatives. No PM is required because notice is being given here.

There is to be no discussion of politics or religion. And there is to be absolutely no personal attacks or bullying. All opinions are welcome and everyone's point of view is to be respected.

This is to some extent a self-regulating forum - and we all need your help to keep the forum running smoothly. If you see a post that has language that might upset a school board or that seems impolite or disrespectful to another person - please bring the post to our attention.


Thank you for your help!

THE CHEHALIS RIVER UNDERWATER CAM

The Chehalis River is a tributary of the Harrison River, which is in turn a major tributary of the Fraser River. The HWF underwater cam is located in the spawning channel at the entrance to the Chehalis Fish Hatchery situated on the shores of the Chehalis river. The cam gives us an up close and personal view of several species of salmon and trout returning to the Fish Hatchery and the Chehalis and Harrison Rivers to spawn.

Steelhead Adults: March to April
Coho Juveniles: All Year

Unfortunately the water will remain murky as long as we are having these heavy rains.

Yes - but at least the rains did come - the salmon would have difficulty getting right up river while the levels were low.
It usually clears up quite quickly Smile
