– “Nisqually tribe’s annual salmon giveaway starts Tuesday”
“The tribe’s Clear Creek Hatchery releases millions of chinook smolts, or young salmon, each year. They return as adults in the fall a few years later to die. Before they do, the eggs and sperm are harvested and then the fish are given away.”
“The fish will be given away from 8 a.m. to noon Tuesday [Sept. 26] as well as Oct. 3 and Oct. 10. Fish will be given out one at a time; to get more than one, you’ll have to go to the back of the line.
For directions to the hatchery, go to Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s main gate (Interstate 5’s exit 120) or east gate (on East Gate Drive off Route 507),” By Abby Spegman, The Olympian.
