Northern California chinook forecasts looks good on paper, and might lead to a sport fishery

After a few years of virtually no salmon fishing in northern California it appears things might change this summer with a chinook forecast three times as large as last year.

Fisheries managers are predicting 729,000 chinook in 2011, up from last year’s forecast of 245,000. Fishing was closed in 2008 and 2009, and just a small window of opportunity occurred in 2010.
