Chinook Run Timing

The following graphs detail run timing of SSRAA produced Chinook salmon for years 2012 through 2016. Beginning at statistical week 18 (the beginning of the Spring Troll fishery), and continuing to the beginning of the Winter fishery. On average, harvest numbers begin a slow increase in weeks 18 and 19 and begin to dramatically increase around weeks 23 and 24; peaking around weeks 25 and 26. Depending upon site, harvest approaches early Spring levels between weeks 29 and 32. For 2017, statistical weeks 23 through 32 correspond to the period beginning June 4, and ending August 12.
