I spent many years working a at Redfish Lake in the Sawtooth mountains of central Idaho. This lake got it’s name due to the shear volume of Sockeye salmon that used to return to its waters to spawn. Coming in droves enough that when they turn red to spawn the lake seemed to change with them. These days the lake is luck to get enough you could count them on a single hand. This piece is dedicated to how it used to be when the only things stopping them was the natural cycle vs the modern dam.
