Due to the lack of rainfall in the winter of 2013-1014, hundreds of Chinook salmon were stuck in pools in the lower Mattole River, in northwestern California.  During normal winters, salmon that come up the Mattole are nearly invisible, due to very turbid water conditions.  This year was different–the water was crystal clear, and ideal for filming.  Original song by the Shook Twins.
