By catch stats, the Chehalis coho run came in slightly early with peak catches occurring in stat week 42 rather than week 43. (it was the only week that catches exceeded expectation). Those participating (and monitoring) were optimistic that the good catches would be a sign of a stronger than expected run, but the coming weeks made it clear there was NO STEAM behind the early returns.
