Although short of forecasts, salmon run still breaks records

All told, some 2.5 million salmon and steelhead will have been counted at the Bonneville fish ladder this year (between Jan. 1 and the end of fall) as they continue their long journey from open ocean to their home streams anywhere from Eagle Creek just above the dam to the upper reaches of the Columbia and Snake River systems.
