Looking forward to Fall Silver

The fall Columbia Coho Estimates are as follows:

Early Run Fall Coho 2001 - 1,036,500
Late Run Fall Coho 2001 - 491,800
Total Run= 1,528,300

Last Year
Actual Early Coho Run 2000 - 378,000
Actual Late Coho Run 2000 - 260,100
Total Run= 638,100

Despite these increases, North of Falcon Ocean Season may not increase. The reason for this is that the estimated Wild Coho run for 2001 is 50,100 as compared to 69,000 in
2000. Its all about Wild Fish Mortality. Even though there are more fish, there are fewer Wild fish, and until we can recover the Wild Stocks, we will be restricted to how much
we can fish.
