For the past several years we've been getting lower numbers of adult King Salmon returning to Cook Inlet and other areas of Alaska. Everybody's theory is that whatever is happening to the Kings is out in the ocean, but if that were true, wouldn't we see lower returns from other States? Washington's Columbia River runs have been strong and steady with this year being predicted as the largest return yet and Oregon's run shows a similar pattern. So what gives? Why are the Cook Inlet kings having such a hard time getting back to the rivers to spawn? Theories, assumptions, guesses anybody?
