As a matter of fact, with the overflow and flooding of the Skokomish River (Washington), the salmon are literally forced to cross the street! Absolutely mind-blowing!
The fascinating footage was filmed by an unnamed driver in the Skok Valley, Washington. Flooding had brought the traffic to a standstill allowing travellers to watch the awe-inspiring scenes from their vehicles.
Although the water was only a couple inches deep in places, the determined salmon muscled their way across the road.
Some would wait at the edge of the roadway, summoning the strength to make the strange crossing.Salmon are born in freshwater, usually in cool fast-flowing water. They live in the river for about two years before making their way out to sea.
