Same analysis. They seem to be deeper this year and away from the beach. That's a shame because I like to catch them from the beach but I have noticed that as they have become more difficult to find, the crowds have dwindled. Heck, I even found a parking spot at the pier in Dash Pt the other day. I was snooping for Coho and saw a lot of blood on the dock so that tells me the Pinks are still around though more difficult to find and catch. Wierd year. I like the hot summer theory and the last two rain storm thoughts. The Puyallup river is thick with them.
