Took a look at the outlets for the Duwamish today to see if there'd be a convenient place to launch my kayak at some point, and saw something incredible in the process. The Easternmost outlet to Eliot Bay - not sure if it has a name - must have had 50,000+ fish milling around in the channel. There were schools with several hundred fish milling around from just below the West Seattle Bridge, and it looked like the fish were just as dense all the way out to the bay. Easily 100 jumping at any one time. Something like this might be a routine sight in Alaska, but IMO seeing a run in these numbers staging anywhere in the continental US, much less a river that's been as ravaged as the lower Duwamish, counts as a bona fide natural wonder. Incredible. Anyone know if the fish tend to stack up in this channel because it's a dead end? I was so blown away by the number of fish (just watching, not fishing per my understanding of the regs) that I didn't even try to check for hints of a current. Hopefully it's not - as anything that needlessly makes the Duwamish even more difficult for migrating fish would be a travesty of the highest order.
