yes, the coho forecasts are down. the problem is that the columbia river late hatchery returns are tiny, and without those hatchery fish available to minimize our impacts on oregon coast natural and thompson/fraser coho, our seasons will be shorter.

so the season will be shorter, but the good news is that close to 2 million washington origin coho will still be passing by neah bay this summer, along with the large pink runs destined for the fraser river and puget sound (16 million to the fraser and 2 million to puget sound rivers).

if you are averaging only a fish a day, you need to leave the marina
