ISSAQUAH — Thousands of Chinook salmon have returned to the salmon hatchery in Issaquah in time for this weekend’s Salmon Days.

Visitors can see the fish in Issaquah Creek, a holding pool and fish windows at the hatchery.

The Seattle Times reported that about 2 percent of the fish released as smolts by the hatchery return after 3 to 5 years in the Bering Sea.
