Summer chums are about done...rather, the little hatchery rats that spawn in July and can't seem to grow bigger than 7lbs are done. The real chums, the fall fatties that spawn in November, are just beginning to show up to the parade ground.
Carcasses are piling up in flows all over SE, and the humpies that were bullied out of prime spawning gravel are now back at it, albeit slightly higher up the bar and in a little faster water. Meanwhile, the dollies have grown fat and happy on a diet of greasy goodness in the form of chum eggs, and most have put on 20-25% of their initial spring weight...chubby little bastiges.
The fall prince is slated to make an appearance next, and if you listed closely, you can hear the Daughter of Fog begin to call them.
