Why are our Skagit and Skykomish seasons shorter in 2021 when Coho numbers are up compared to 2020

My understanding is that the WDFW, plans to publish a shorter season each year and incrementally extended as fish start returning and they get clarity on the return rates. This seems like a reasonable trade-off given how bad the early forecast has been.

Oof. I went out a few weekends ago and the humpy stank was profuse. Didn’t see or hook any coho, just the last two non-zombie pinks in the river brought to hemostats.

Pretty wild to see such huge returns on Coho into the columbia basin with the steelhead and chinook numbers compared to the 10 year average. Wonder what the 20 or 30 year average looks like?

Very strange, indeed
