Scholarly research still has its holes, even when it is from 1996. The same year as all that fun flooding. Just keep in mind that not all scholarly research has all the truth or the facts in it. It may be well organized and most of the time biased. Salmon have a tendancy to run into new territory. Not all the seccrets that surround salmon behavior are understood. Can you imagine what the fishing was like before the "white man" destroyed it all? You could of had multiple runs of various species going into every river in Oregon. I'm sure those pinks were looking for a new hangout or they were chased into it...A Pink in the Siletz? Really?
According to this scholarly research--there are no Pinks south of Washington's Rivers.
Got a pic, so you can show this to be wrong?
Brad may be awhile getting back to us. Anyway, Pinks have more names than any spices of salmon that I know of. Dog salmon. Wonder how they got that name?Living in alaska gave me the undersatnding that pinks were another name for humpies and chum and dog salmon were in the same boat. weres brad when you need him? never caught on in a river need to add it to the list.
