YEA!  It's a pink year!!!! I can't wait!

Just kidding.... I just thought I'd stir the pot a bit. 

Personally, I think they're fun to catch, especially on a fly rod, but as far as usage, I think they're only good for crab bait or dog food.  I know plenty of folks eat them, they're just not my thing. 

Pink years seem to bring out the most quality fisher people as well.....   :o ::)

Rumor is the skagit will be closed. Nooksack will be open. The last out-migration  was terrible. Lets hope the river doesn't warm up as fast as it did the last run . Lets hope for some more snow pack!

Snowpack should be good. Been a good year up in the mountains so far. I like going out and catching pinks on the fly rod as well... and it's also a fun way to introduce people to fishing. Nothing makes someones first salmon fishing trip more fun than actually catching a few!

That would be a bummer if the Skagit is closed though.
