Over at the Squaxin NR blog is what to expect in deep South Sound fish runs and the tribe’s fishing seasons:
We are expecting to see some good returns of Fall Chinook with approximately 19,500 expected to come back to Tumwater Falls Hatchery this year. The coho season was a real downer last year with record low returns but the forecast looks promising with expected net pen coho returns to be around 51,000.
Fall chum numbers look to be lower this year from last with 264,000 coming back to our region. Being an odd year, escapement goals for Totten Inlet (Kennedy) will be 11,500 chum and Eld Inlet (McLane & Perry) will be 14,500 chum.
Its a longish post with some charts, which you can read over at the Squaxin NR blog.
