There has been a lot of talk this year about the clipped Coho not showing up. Maybe ODFW misplaced their scissors for a few months.

What? Salmon don't generally explore other rivers. Besides, they've been missing everywhere.

I've heard that mostly off the Columbia system but some of the NW section bays too. I think I read something about it a while back too. I'll have to look to see if I can find it.

Do you mind if I ask how you manage to fish so much? Do you not have a normal 9-5? Are there any openings?

I sure hope it happens soon,last year it seemed to be about every 7 or 8 fish was clipped,the clipped ones have probably been the ones ive lost

Don't worry, I have one lousy fish :) on my tag this yr and have tied into 30+ that have all been native. Not coho, but other salmon and steelhead.

Stick with it! I'm sure it will happen soon. Plus most guys are happy to catch one Salmon a year!

The owl never made it past 2. :lol:

Maybe the clippers are just a bit slow coming in this year?

If you get above Scottsburg I would say the ratio is more like 20/1!!! :rolleyes: Those guys up at rock creek have had some poor production years the last couple of seasons! :think: 2 years in a row there were no winter steelhead in the South river! I think at least half or more of this years springer run were wild fish! :D They have done a lot of improvements this year to the hatchery so hopefully things get back on track!
