YAKIMA — Slightly more than 10,000 adult sockeye salmon just arrived in Lake Cle Elum, their upstream migration diverted by a tanker truck ride courtesy of Yakama Nation Fisheries.

By introducing the fish to an area that has been blocked for a century by a dam, tribal biologists hope to rebuild a healthy population. These adults will spawn and their surviving offspring will migrate to the ocean and back, returning to help the population grow.
