SALMON SMOLT DELIVERY SCHEDULE 2016
The Department of Fish and Wildlife delivered the last batch of Chinook salmon smolt on Wednesday May 25 at about 11 am. The salmon are kept in the pen 5 days and fed by an automated machine and released on the following Monday .
The delivery of the smolt is made at the end of Johnson Pier, Pillar Point Harbor usually after 10:30 am and the public is invited to watch. Be sure to bookmark this page for next year's Salmon smolt project. Please consider donating to help with this important Coastside Fishing Foundation effort supported by the County of San Mateo, Coastside Fishing Club and private donations.
The Mokelumne River Hatchery supplied the salmon smolt in 2016 for the first time under the direction of Bill Smith, the hatchery manager. In prior years, the smolt were provided by the Feather River Hatchery in Oroville.
Our thanks to the many volunteers, Coastside Fishing Club, the Dept of Fish and Wildlife, hatchery folks, especially Bill Smith, and the Salmon Troller's Association, who contributed toward the wire tag costs this year.
