Giant Salmon Carving Dropped Off at Hatchery by Mystery Artist

By Phil Bourjaily

Granted, there’s always something fishy going on at a hatchery, but New Year’s Day saw a real mystery at the Issaquah salmon hatchery in Washington state.

Sometime between 4:00 p.m. and 7:15 the next morning, someone dropped a freshly cut, six foot fall cedar chainsaw carving of a salmon near the hatchery’s front door.

The name “Issaquah” is carved into the base of the statue, so it was obviously delivered to the correct address. There is no other writing on the statue, nor has the sculptor has stepped forward to claim responsibility, according to KOMO news.

Hatchery officials would like to learn the identity of the mystery artist to say thank you. The sculpture will be displayed on hatchery grounds along with a pair of metal salmon and a carved eagle already at the hatchery.

What a great carving... Hopefully the owner is able to stay anonymous if that is what he wishes...
