The Seattle Times and Seattle P-I outdoors reporters make note of the Tulalip Tribes bubble fishery, which opens tomorrow, observing that tribal fishermen already have caught sizable chinook.

The Times:

The Tulalip bubble chinook fishery opens Friday, and early indications are good.

“I’ve heard the [Tulalip] tribes have netted some chinook already,” said Gary Krein, owner of All-Star Charters in Everett.

The earlier-timed hatchery chinook run at the bubble fishery has been occurring for several years, and these fish tend to be more willing biters when it first opens.
