Now that I totally agree with Doc. The Chum seem to be hung up someplace.

They have Nov 7 up now and Coho hatchery numbers still twice 2018 but wild is 700 and 2018 it was 1500. Now on the Wishkah 2018 was 4500 H and 2019 is 1500. This is same point in time folks and these numbers change a lot in the last three weeks of Nov. It is all about stream flows that are never the same on a given date from year to year. So there is one certainty right now, nobody knows for sure just how the runs are performing.

When I began working with fish staff did not have lap tops or the mountains of data available now. They had to know the watersheds and all the interactions the fish have with the many environmental variables that are always present. With greater use of computer modeling those skill sets are mostly gone and that is not necessarily a good thing.
