    We've got a few here in WA.

    Now that pinks are re-establishing themselves in the Columbia, maybe we'll see a few more.

    Funny how "pinooks" became the politically correct hybrid name.

    Somehow neither "chinks" nor "kinks" was gonna fly. Imagine that?

    Years ago ADF&G planted Pinooks in some of the valley lakes. Didn't work out so well.

    I lived in Ketchikan for 4+ years before moving to Southcentral and they are there. Not common but also not unusual. We called them (and the biologists as well) "chumpys" I was associated with a hatchery that did kings and cohos and the outlet water had everything but reds, and we saw about 2-3 a year.

    Have not been out fishing much lately but F&G wanted us to take 10 of the smal kings mostly male's [ if not all ]
    at that time F&G said they realy did not ndid not want the small male's to do his thing with the eggs , has there idea changed ?
    some one said it was a bad to have the small kings out of water?? I think the length was 20 inches has it changed ?????
