To quote a favorite Disney character, "It's what I do... it's what I live for."

So here's some historic evidence that the 100K GH 2012 fall chinook number I cited earlier is NOT a science fiction fantasy.

50-100K adult production from current habitat? Seriously?

Yah... you betcha! Look at what escapements in the 20-25K range could historically produce.

Except back then, they were virtually ALL caught in the terminal by locals instead of getting low-holed by AK/BC like they are today.
