2012 Klamath River Salmon Season Ready
for Six Times More Salmon than Last Year

From the Del Norte Triplicate 
 
  This week, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife released projections of 1.6 million chinook salmon returning to the Klamath River — a six-fold increase over last year’s numbers.  The Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC), which crafts the season, will give sport fishermen a decent season this year.
Doane will be representing the KMZFC from Mar. 2–7 at the PFMC’s meeting, where he will advocate a salmon season from at least Memorial Day to Labor Day, with fishing allowed seven days a week.
“It looks like the 2012 season will be what we’d consider a full season, but 2013 is definitely in question,” Doane said.
