Astoria Sardine report...
They are few and they are small. Most buyers are not buying because of the small sizes, and too there are not as many schools as what have been observed in the last few years.
However it is rumored that the Sardines down at "Pedro" are larger than usual! What it all means is it is not a normal year. I, myself will wait awhile for a bigger "Sword" to fall on.
I will be conducting interpersonal testing of the areas adjacent to Neah Bay the first week of August for temperature and salinity and "Vintage" probably do some fishing too!!!
I take all the dismal news re the enviroment way to seriously and must from time to time make light of it, however the Sardiner reports are accurate.
