Things are not looking good for the rivers on the Olympic Penninsula.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has reported low, warm river flows are causing high mortality among salmon trying to return to rivers to spawn.

While all of the North Olympic Peninsula’s measured rivers are setting new daily records with each dawn, the Elwha and Calawah rivers are at their lowest for the month of June recorded in 117 years.
