Salmon Spawning Grounds

We spotted these salmon spawning in this stream on the way to Valdez. Curious, I rolled up my pants and mucked around in the shallow water to see if I could catch one. They were quite slippery and successfully evaded me. After awhile they churned up and hid in the mud.By this time they had been in fresh water awhile and were discolored, some patchy and others darker greys and reddish hues. Undoubtedly many of these kelts had already spawned and were ready to die.
