Going Home (Salmon on the Elwha)

by Kurt Hoehne

John Gussman’s short video captures the grace, beauty and magic of salmon returning to the de-damned Elwha River. Original link here. -KH

Gussman’s comments: With the lower Elwha Dam gone, and the Glines Canyon Dam scheduled to be gone in early 2014, the chinook salmon are coming back to their ancestral spawning grounds unreachable for the last 100 years. I spent a week in early September filming them in the Elwha River and one of it’s tributaries, Indian Creek. These are a few of the outtakes from that shoot, some of the final footage will be used in the film “Return of the River”, Learn more at elwhafilm.com/
