TAC expects nearly 1.6 million back this fall. WOO HOO!
Even if we only get half that prediction back, fishing should be awesome all summer and fall.Can any of you armchair scientists put some wind in our sails, given the swing-and-a-miss prediction of 2019? I really want to get stoked about this prediction, but I'm sorta feeling like I'm Charlie Brown and the fish predictors are Lucy holding the football.
Ocean conditions were better last year than in quite some time. The ocean is where it's at!Someone care to explain why the increased run size in their opinion? . Maybe the ocean is better where coho hang out? Or maybe the upper CR/Snake river folks are releasing more Coho smolts nowadays????? Those dread full unclipped hatch fish from above the dams....Some are clipped but not sure on the percentage .
Or is the Habitat better for the wilds and their offspring?
