Description Though recent rainfall was higher than expected, river flows remained lower than those in 2018. October air temperatures dropped. However, water temperatures remained warm enough in South and Central Sound for anchovies to spawn and to support optimal growth for herring and salmon in Whidbey Basin.

By the end of October, many red-brown blooms vanished from South Puget Sound, yet the waters were still green, adorned in many places with rafts of organic debris.
