In this photo taken Thursday, April 24, 2014, a young Chinook salmon, called a smolt, is displayed before it is among the more than 750.000 released in San Pablo Bay near Vallejo, Calif. Due to the worst drought that California has faced in 40 years, state and federal wildlife officials fear that the smolts, normally released upriver near the hatcheries were they were spawned, would not survive low river flows, warm water and predators to survive the journey to the ocean.
