The Elwha is a river in the Olympic National Forest. Two dams stopped salmon and other fish from swimming up and down the river. The government spent $365 million to remove the dams. This year 3,528 Chinook (King) salmon returned to the Elwha. This is very good news.The two men in the photo work for Washington State. They are holding a large Elwha Chinook (King) salmon.
