Several folks had questions on the graph so some clarification is needed for the graph as I forget not everyone is as familiar with this stuff as I am.

The graphs are for NOS ( natural origin or wild if you like ) Chinook.

The purple line is the escapement goal.

The percentage at the bottom of the graph is percent of natural spawners that can be killed be it by commercial net, pole, in the bay, or in the river.

The colors in the graph bars correspond to the color code chart for years to show how many years to make or not escapement at the harvest rate on natural spawning populations.
Dazed and confused.............the fog is closing in
