State Fish and Wildlife released salmon forecasts Friday (March 1), and the big news is the 6.2-million forecast of pink salmon returning to Puget Sound this summer.
This includes places like the Nisqually River where 764,000 pinks are expected, and a forecast didn’t even exist from them just two two years ago. Fisheries biologists are finding that the resilient pinks are showing up in places as far south as the Columbia River.
