    Stopped in on Saturday. Watched from the bridge for about 15 min. didn't see one fish. No one was fishing either. Water was high and the river has changed above the bridge.

    I camped there all weekend, and there were no pinks to be seen. As gundog said the water is really high in the river. Not much effort. I fished it for a couple hours, and saw about 10 others all weekend that fished. I did see a seal at the mouth, so hopefully he knew something was coming.

    Last year I caught the first pink in Ingram on July 14th, it was another week before they came in any kind of real numbers. I would assume Hope gets them just a little earlier. Usually I can nail dollies from the beginning of June until the pinks come in but have had no luck so far this year.

    just got back today from Hope. I didnt see one pink form wed evening to sunday morn. I checked above the bridge a few times, but i checked from the bridge to the mouth 4 or 5 times a day. last year this time there were so many in there, it took awhile to get a bright one. i will try to get back down there in a week or two when they come in.

    I stopped by Ingram on Thursday and did not see anything. Will be back down that way later this week and will see if it has improved. Water was higher than normal, but that is par for the course this year.
