    Default Today (20 Jun) on the Deshka

    Well, we got a little bit of a late start. Launched about 0730. There were boats coming back from the 0600 start. I said to the one guy, "you're back a little early aren't you?" he said it was dead. We dropped anchor about 0800. The sun came out strong about 1030, beautiful day, got sunburn. I ripped the lips off of one and that was about it. Did not see or hear anyone else catch a fish today. We left at 3pm. It was a nice day, and it sure beat being at work, but no fishies!! Oh well, that's the way it goes...

    We started at 6, fished until 3. My boy caught a jack and had a good hit. Pretty darn slow. We saw 3 kings boated and a few tied to stringers. I think they were decoys.

    Default Read 'em and weep....



    WOW!

    Well past half-way thru the run (even taking late run-timing into account) and the Deshka has only seen 3687 fish swim past the weir!

    Peak daily passage was a measly 500 fish.

    The most productive trib on the Big Su reduced to nothing more than milk toast.

    Sad.... so sad.

    I'm telling you. One bad year is not a representation of future run. The low run could be from many reasons. Ex: high waters 3-5 years ago washed all the eggs away, High snow and cold spring this year, COMMERCIAL FISHING!!!! All these variables and many more may contribute to a low return this year. Watch, next year it will be back to normal.
    What you should worry about is this years combination on a low return, late spring, high muddy water will do nothing good for the return in 3-5 years from now. Let's just all pray that there is not any big flooding like 2 years ago!
