The Lower Boise Creek salmon return videos show underwater footage of Chinook and pink salmon returning to spawn in a restored section of Boise Creek west of Enumclaw, WA. The first thing returning salmon encounter as they leave the White River and enter Boise Creek is two acres of new habitat restored in 2010 and subsequently monitored for success.
