Gettin' some Love, 'Ho-Style

Yesterday's flooded rivers are today's perfect creeks, and by the time y'all read this most of them will be locking up at higher elevation and the water is going to keep dropping...and the fish are going to get if you weren't out today, you missed it.


These things happen.

Somewhat prematurely, the coho season is beginning to fizzle. Most runs are in the waning days, and some that peak soon seem to be sputtering a bit. The surviving fish are smaller than the average 'Ho, and they are coming back in fits and starts...can anyone say "Low Ocean Survival"?

Hopefully this isn't the new trend. Maybe this is some strange anomaly in large pink years, where 150+ million humpies outcompete the other salmon.

At any rate, the fish are fewer this year, but the love is still there.

You just gotta know where to look for it.
