The first release of 2020 was a complete success. 15,000 coho salmon smolts were released into Beaver Creek on the Manchester Fuel Farm property. These coho smolts were raised at the Port Orchard Rotary hatchery on Karcher Creek by Discovery High School students led by their teacher Jerry Polley. They have an additional 70,000 chum salmon in the hatchery that will be ready for release around early March.
