Here is a story that came out of the Sacramento Bee this past week that will highly interest salmon anglers.
In short it says that northern California’s salmon anglers who have been in dire straits the past six years may have a sign of hope on the horizon after salmon returns last fall were better than any since 2006.
After three years of declines, the state Department of Fish and Game says about 163,000 chinook returned to the two major northern California rivers in 2010.
The Sacramento River fall run is a good predictor for the health of the Pacific Coast fishery because it provides much of the salmon caught off northern California and southern Oregon.
