GH & WILLAPA UPDATE
Update time. Willapa has Chinook in numbers
instream. The bay Chinook mix is about 20% or so W/H which is way off modeled
and keeping the nets on shore. Very few Coho.
GH / Chehalis same inriver but smaller numbers. QIN
got over 2500 Chinook but very few Coho in two 24 hr periods most scales set.
The harvest was well above what was modeled. Hump Chinook are tracking close to
So Chinook look OK so far but Coho, not so much. In
fact we wait until the bay opens tomorrow in GH but I think we are getting
close to only two options. The Coho run is starting in late or coming up well
Time will tell.
