Recent rains triggered the coho salmon spawning season. The female appears to be the fish on the lower right laying eggs in the gravel which are fertilized by the male behind her. At about 30 inches long, the salmon were in Lagunitas Creek near the Shafter bridge in Lagunitas, CA near Samuel P. Taylor State Park.

Another interesting fish-spawning activity in the SF Bay Area is the annual herring run as shown in these videos: Gulls Gone Wild and Catching Tons of Herring in the SF Bay.
