Summertime and the fishing is perplexing

Posted by Jim Vesely

A story out of Portland reveals the remarkable news that the largest run of sockeye salmon is running up the Columbia River -- more sockeye than have been counted in five decades, since 1938.

A depleted fishery that 10 years ago was reduced to just two fish at Lower Granite Dam on the Snake River has seen 800 return to the dam. About 218,000 have been counted at Bonneville Dam. What to make of it?

Jim Vesely's Sunday column explains how NOAA views the fishery. Click below for a podcast Q&A with the author.
