    You've only got a couple years to catch coho! Nostradamus says the world will END on December 21, 2012. Are there any Nostradamus's on here? ..... Fill out the survey!!!! :D

    Zack, we all want good numbers but looking at previous years I do not think it will be good at all this year. Just seeing what everyone else thought.

    Well its good to see you all thinking its going to be good. I asked because everything I have seen so far tell me that the resident coho fishing this winter is going to suck, but we will have to see. Still would like to hear what the rest of you think.

    Perhaps it is the same reason folks act like the world is coming to an end if a Wild Steelhead is kept but congratulate others for bonking a native Coho hen.
