The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) has been positive (meaning unfavorable warm ocean conditions) nearly every month from January 2014 through December 2019. In fact 2015 and 2016 had the worst positive PDO readings ever recorded.

The first four months of 2020 have all had negative PDO readings indicating favorable ocean conditions for the smolt out migration going on right now. The 2020 terminal Chehalis coho return is forecasted to be 70,000 fish. All things being equal (they never are), the negative PDO could be forecasting a 2021 coho run in the range of 120,000 fish.

Well now that is some good news....

Thanks......maybe it will help the 2020 summer run steelhead......2019 was the worse I've seen in my 40+ years of chasing summer run steelhead, locally .

That's good for us down here. But, the shift in PDO will crash Alaska. Not that they'll fish less, they'll just get less of their fish.

Actually, Alaska has constrained the SEAK troll fishery from the PST max allowed when their own stocks were in trouble. They don't when its only nonAlaska stocks that are hurting.
