I live close to Meadowdale Creek north of Edmonds and have noticed that very few silver and chum salmon returned to the creek this fall (only about 7 or 8 total it seems from the posted tally). This creek is an important cutthroat creek in the north sound and I'm sure that those spawned out carcasses provide important nutrients for the young cutts trying to make a living in that small creek. This weekend I was looking in my freezer and found a bag of silver salmon heads and tails that I kept from this summer's catch for crab bait. Instead of using them for crabbing, I'm going to toss them into different locations along Meadowdale creek the next time I hike down there. I'm sure other WFF members live in the general neighborhood and probably have a few filleted out salmon in the freezer that could be used to "fertilize" Meadowdale Creek. Please donate them to the creek next time you are in the area.
