King salmon at the George Adams Fish Hatchery   I happened to be in the Hood Canal today so I dropped by the  WDFW George Adams Fish Hatchery just north of Shelton. I expected to see the king salmon swimming  in the holding pens but instead watched the hatchery staff sort salmon into big plastic containers. The surplus salmon was being donated to several food banks.  It was a great chance to see the fish up close. I noticed that most of them were already starting to get colored up. Another surprising observation was that most of the kings were not very big and some of them were well under 10 lbs.
