  • SE Abundance index 1.69 for Kings.

    Will that be a 2 or 3 fish daily limit for kings, for residents? That's higher than last year.

    blah.. found it. Still 2 kings a day. How am I supposed to wipe out endangered runs down in Washington and Oregon if I can only keep 2 kings a day?

      Oops! I was looking at 2010. 2011 is indeed 3 kings, for residents! This is going to be fun! The last year we had a 3 king limit, the king fishing was stupid good!

        Annual limit of 5 for non-res. Must be a lot of kings in the ocean. Thank you Cora.

            Looks like ADF&G threw non-res. a bone as well, upping our limit to 1 a day, 5 for the year. Looking forward to catching my Columbia river fish as far away from that mess (Buoy 10) as possible.

              I think they're just throwing the guides a bone because of the halibut deal. Proof that they'll sacrifice our salmon for the rich IFQ holders

                The daily and posession limits are frameworked into regulation by the Board of Fisheries (depending on the Abundance Index #). Cora (the Commissioner) didn't make these decisions.

                  So did ADF&G contact WA and OR and tell them to make up some strong return numbers to justify raising S.E. king limits? Been numerous newspaper articles here (WA-OR) lately talking about this years strong king returns, both numbers and size, predicting alot of 4 and 5 salt fish. But I'm sure all this talk is just to justify raising king limits in another state to keep people happy over the new halibut regs.

                    Yeah, I noticed that. Hoping for an amazing May/June of king fishing.

                      Most charter anglers in my area come for 3 days of fishing, so the 5 a year limit won't benefit them that much.

                        Most of our guests come for either 2 full/2 half days or 3 full/2 half days so it benefits us.
                        The springer run on the Columbia hasn't been anything great but wasn't predicted to be, that being said, the size average seems to be much larger then most years. Usually springers are typically 12 to 15 pounds with a 20 being a nice fish, this year there have been alot of low to mid 20's and more 30's then usual as well.

                          even if the Columbia gets a good run, there are still TONS of sea lions that are waiting at the dam for them...........

                            I have a question about sea lions. Would they sink or float if you shot one? Just wondering
