Yes I have heard that as well.....Sam_Salmon said:Could be mistaken but wasn't the even year run wiped out by the Hell's Gate rock slide?
I think the even year of pinks was wiped out by the landslide but I'm not surestone said:I vaguely recall reading about pinks returning every year in the Fraser system, the odd years being the stronger run. The even years was wiped out, IIRC, but I don't remember the reason why.
To further elaborate on the odd year pinks, the hatchery on the Quinsam has released pinks on odd years in order to influence a yearly pink fishery, with quite a bit of success. The Campbell & Quinsam are now considered to have yearly pink runs which are equal in size.spring king said:I am not sure why pinks only run on odd years but I don`t think the slide had anything to do with it beacause pinks only run on odd years on the south coast and even years on the north coast. Some river systems (like campbell )have seeded with even year pinks.
Yes, but I quite like the white spring run ;Dprofessori said:Haven't we messed up enough things in nature without stepping in and changing yet another thing for our immediate wants?
