The cartoon caption contest gave readers the opportunity to cast in on the state’s plan to truck salmon around the Delta to avoid harmful conditions due to drought. About 100 readers floated themes of rides to Alaska, the bullet train and, of course, the proposed twin tunnels. And there was much concern about the anadromous fish being able to get a round-trip ticket for a safe return in a few years.

Joe Mello of Folsom reeled in more than 50 percent of the online vote with his caption of the salmon soliciting a promise to avoid sushi restaurants while en route to the Bay Area. Mello will receive a signed color print of Steve Greenberg’s editorial cartoon with the winning caption.
