Estimates of age-specific returns to hatcheries and spawning grounds, as well as harvest by Tribal and recreational fisheries are reported in the annual report on the Klamath River Fall Chinook Salmon Age-Specific Escapement, River Harvest, and Run Size Estimates (numbers also given in the “Mega Table“). The harvest in the Hoopa Tribal fishery and the Trinity River recreational fishery is composed of both naturally and hatchery produced fall Chinook salmon. The harvest in the Yurok Tribal fishery and the lower Klamath recreational fishery is composed of naturally produced Chinook salmon from both the Klamath and Trinity rivers, as well as the major tributaries to both rivers and Chinook salmon produced at Trinity River Hatchery and Iron Gate Hatchery on the Klamath River.
