The Puget Sound commercial salmon run is just starting up this week.  The season is expected to be good, with chum prices in the 1.00 range.  However, this news puts a damper on the situation.

But few Salmon, Trout and Steelhead have shown up among the dead. Palsson says thats still a bit of a mystery.”Well see Chum Salmon coming in later in the fall right at the surface, so they may be benefiting from the last layer of good water,” said Palsson.
