2011 Salmon season update!!!!!

2011 Salmon season update: Kenny Priest Fishing the Northcoast

It’s looking more and more like the North Coast, and all of California for that matter, could once again be in for a full-length salmon season. The Department of Fish and Game held their annual salmon abundance meeting Tuesday in Santa Rosa, where discussions centered on actual numbers from the 2010 season and to project the number of salmon swimming in coastal waters in 2011. The agency projected an ocean population of 729,000 Sacramento River fall run Chinook salmon, which is up from a 2010 projection of 245,000 fish. The Klamath River has also seen an increase in ocean population, with, this year’s numbers projected to top 370,000, up from a forecast 331,500 in 2010. What this all means is Humboldt County could see a start to the salmon season as early as mid-April. Next up, the Pacific Fishery Management Council is set to meet Saturday in Vancouver, WA to consider its recommendations for the length of this year’s salmon season, with a final decision to come later in the spring.
