Big question is how much bait, if any, to take along.
Is an imminent bait ban looming in the days ahead?
Through July 11, the typical quarter-point of the late-run, indices used to assess run strength indicate that the 2011 actual inriver run strength is similar to the runs seen in 2009 and 2010, years when it was questionable if the lower end of the escapement goal was achieved. Inseason restrictive actions to the sport fishery are being considered to ensure that the sustainable escapement goal of late-run king salmon will be achieved.
The next regular update is planned for Friday, July 15.
Got eggs cured in several flavors, fresh sardines, not so fresh sardines, herring, and tuna bellies. Hate to bring it all along only to go unused and wasted.
