The Klamath River saw a record fall Chinook salmon run of 302,108 adults, while the Sacramento River hosted a run of 283,871 adult salmon in the fall of 2012.
The preliminary estimates of adult and jack (two-year-old) spawning escapements (returns) to the two systems were recently released by the posting of the Review of 2012 Ocean Salmon Fisheries on the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC) website (http://www.pcouncil.org/wp-content/uploads/salsafe_2012.pdf)

The data is compiled by the state, federal and tribal fishery agencies.
