Why Did The Fish Cross The Road?…..Salmon Cross Flooded Road in Washington State

Almost every year, when rains are heavy, salmon cross the road in the Skokomish Valley on the Olympic Peninsula. This year’s spectacle did not disappoint. The migrating chum salmon have shown a persistence in finding places upstream to spawn. But they don’t all make it. Even in Ewing’s video, one salmon appears stuck motionless on the pavement.  This video was taken in November 2016 on the Skykomish Valley Road near Seattle, WA. Due to high rainfall, the river had burst its banks and was flooding over fields and roads. Migrating salmon – returning from a life in the ocean – seek the lower flow streams to spawn and die. These Salmon are following the stream wherever it goes – using great effort to overcome obstacles including roads.    This is a perfect example of how strong, resourceful, and amazing Nature is,..just check out this video to see what I mean!
