Members of the Seymour Salmonid Society and volunteers captured coho salmon and steelhead trout in the Seymour River and ferried them one by one in backpacks with water bladders up a staircase to a waiting truck at the top of Riverside Drive Thursday for release upstream. So far the group has rescued 50 fish that are blocked from reaching their natural spawning habit by 50,000 cubic metres of granite that came down in the canyon during a massive rockslide last December. photo Mike Wakefield – See more on the North Shore News Website
