Issaquah Valley Elementary third-graders at the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery see an exhibit showing how salmon embryos develop in their eggs over three months and hatch into fry. Leona Keltner’s class placed three-week-old kokanee salmon fry into Issaquah Creek April 19 beneath the West Sunset Way bridge. As part of an educational field trip, the students released 90 of the hatchery’s 85,000 kokanee fry, a milestone because early-run kokanee disappeared from the creek a decade ago.
