Nearly 5 million shad have been counted at Bonneville Dam as of Sunday. That’s approaching the record of 5.06 million fish counted on June 24, 2004, according to Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife staff.
With the run remaining strong, WDFW staff anticipate this year’s run to surpass the 2004 record. Additionally, the 91,000 sockeye counted at the dam through Sunday was the seventh highest on record.
