Chinook Salmon fry from the Chehalis River were collected and genetic samples sent to Dr. Miller’s lab at UC Davis. Recent analysis suggests Spring and Fall Chinook populations are hybridizing in the Chehalis and the population of true Spring Chinook, those with the GREB 1L gene, is much lower than previously thought.
