Hood League’s top two team, and rematch of the Eagles’ only loss of the season. Reynolds again proved too tough to overcome, as they finished with a 12-9 win to secure the No. 1 league position with about two weeks left in the regular season.

All told, some 2.5 million salmon and steelhead will have been counted at the Bonneville fish ladder this year (between Jan. 1 and the end of fall) as they continue their long journey from open ocean to their home streams anywhere from Eagle Creek just above the dam to the upper reaches of the Columbia and Snake River systems.
