School of coho salmon below a waterfall

To watch salmon hurdle themselves up impossibly swift and high waterfalls is one of the most amazing feats of nature to witness, but have you ever wondered what it looks like below the froth and currents? In October hundreds of coho salmon gather beneath a waterfall several feet high summoning the strength to make the jump to their spawning grounds.
