    Unfortunately, they have pulled those numbers outta their arse. Has anybody figured in the massive flooding we had that probably wiped out the the spawn? I doubt it. I think we are all in for a MAJOR disappointment. as a matter of fact, some very reliable sources agree with me.

    TC, thanks for bringing us down :rofl: I think I need a beer now :beer1: I do agree that those numbers seem to come from strange places! I will believe the fish are there when I see them. I just hope that day will come.

    Pinks are two year fish, this year should be a banner year

    Forgot to add two different runs on different years, sorry

    TC, maybe you are a killjoy? Maybe you are Nostrafreakingdamus? Maybe you are just trying to cut down on the fishing pressure so you and your boys have them all to yourself.

    Time will tell.

    I agree, the chum/silver run in 3-4 year will be hurting. On the Nooksack especially. The Post Xmas snow storm flood put 10's of feet of gravel over 80% or the redds on the Sack.

    What're the chances I'll run into any early pinks fishing beaches on Whidbey this weekend? Anyone getting any love? I'll be there Sat and Sun, and if I can break away from the family for an hour or two I'm gonna give it a try.

    Thanks David. Sky should be full of humped out fish eventually. No, I'm just hoping to hook up off a Whidbey beach this weekend. Just a little casual fishing, nothing hard core. I'll probably just pick a point on whichever side is leeward that morning and have at it for a couple of hours until the girls are ready to go tourist things. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, any general insight would be appreciated. Just no more hump photos, thanks.
