I have been chasing Chinook salmon in the Central Valley rivers since early June…catching them for scientific research in some cases, catching them for fun, food & profit in others.
Either way, it’s been a long season and I’m finally calling it quits for 2012. I’m happy to report that the Chinook numbers in the rivers seemed solid, though the final counts have yet to come in.
Hopefully, we will get plenty of rain this winter and that ocean conditions will remain healthy. If so, we should see more good fishing in the years to come!
