"I wouldn't want to be a salmon right now," said Doug Demko, a fisheries biologist with environmental consulting firm Fishbio, which counts migrating fish on Central Valley streams.
The whole situation is puzzling, said Demko, the biologist.
Fish populations actually increased on the Stanislaus and Mokelumne rivers, but it's hard to say why, he said.
Ocean conditions improved in 2007-08, meaning the generation of salmon that swim upstream in the fall of 2010 and 2011 may be stronger, Demko said. But the ocean shifted again in mid-2009, throwing the 2012 salmon run into uncertainty.
While the numbers today are the worst on record, there have been other bad years. In 1992, a mere 80,340 fish returned to the Sacramento River; that number soared to 769,868 in 2002 before crashing to its current state.
"It really is boom or bust for salmon these days," Demko said.

Chico State grad Doug Demko created FISHBIO six years ago in the Stanislaus County town of Oakdale. He opened a Chico office about a year ago, he said, in part because it's easier to hire and bring people to Chico than to Oakdale.
The company's website describes FISHBIO as "a dedicated group of research scientists, engineers, and technicians that specialize in counting, tracking, and analyzing trends in fish and wildlife populations throughout the world. Our expert staff, technical capacity, and state-of-the-art equipment make us trailblazers in aquatic research."
Demko is an engaging fellow who is not shy about sharing what he knows and what his company does.
Like so many others in this town, he came to Chico to attend college and never really left, though he spends most of his time these days on the road. "FISHBIO started six years ago, but I've been on the road probably 70 to 80 percent of the time," he said during a recent interview in his office.

"It's an integral part of our company culture," said FISHBIO President Doug Demko.
