Wounds and fungus are common. Two most obvious solutions are culling sea lions and cormorants then releasing more water for salmonids and not junk produce we export to other countries.

Why so many lies these fish always get this way from being in freshwater and not salt the always get diseases when the get close to spawning out yes warm water temperatures in the smaller rivers that are not as deep causes less oxygen so they are more prone to die but these fish will spawn out and die. Notice the video title then they go on to say possibly could be happening in the Columbia River ..... why cant there be transparency instead of always pushing a agenda and the latest agenda is removal of all dams. Those fished they showed were way up river about to spawn out.

Nobody mentions the Indians that gill net a ton of fish all year long and then sell them stop that and more alot more fish will make it up to the spawn grounds helping the species climate change is a joke we have not been on this earth long enough to know its weather cycles.

One of the first fish has a would from a seal that got infected that’s not unusual😐 and maybe if they let some more water out of the dams the water wouldn’t be so hot

Wait. Salmon bodies historically deteriorate while returning to spawn, yes warmer water is bad, but let's face it, those involved in publication of this video are not providing to you all the facts. Returning salmon always began the deterioration process upon entering fresh water, not feeding.

Dams usually create colder water downstream. Fish ladders work. Holding back water is safer than letting it go and praying for rain.
Perhaps these fish had to pass through farmed Salmon and got sick.

Salmon used to return to the exact stream they were born in to mate and die.
Their bodies fed the trees which shaded the streams and kept them cool.
Which is better a dam to go around or no water at all?

How about less rain in Idaho to dilute fertilizers and pesticides in the snake river? I've been monitoring a river that climbs up to the low 80's during every salmon season and they make it with no problems. I know the Columbia doesn't reach those temperatures.

Just what we need more river huggers pushing climate change to screw up the rivers, the fishing and the normal spawning cycle of our salmon. Salmon start to go down hill as soon as they hit the fresh water, net marks and seal and sea lion bites don't help.

How great it will be when Columbia warms up enough for people to swim in it, like the Colorado river for example? The salmon will always find a new place somewhere up north. But we can have a blast swimming in the mighty Columbia during the summer !!!

Allowing the river to warm? I’m pretty sure nobody has control over a hot summer and that is all it is ding dong, we have hot and cold years all through out history!

These fish need thermal refuge! -- Bust up the Dams! Bust them up! 130 other species rely on these migrating cold water fish returning to the bioregion for their very sustenance not sport or profit.
