I have reminded everyone that it is time to get your fishing license for the season. You needed a new one by April 1st. Now I want to remind you that you need to send in your salmon catch record card. You need to send these in by the end of April each year, whether you fished for salmon without success or not. My wife is really good at telling me it’s time, often putting her old card right next to my computer. Even though she didn’t get a chance to fish for salmon last year. I spent most of my salmon fishing days on Lake Wenatchee and had a lot of check marks under sockeye. So, before you toss it out when you get a new license and card this year, remember to put it in an envelope and mail it to Olympia. The address is WDFW CRC Unit, P.O. Box 43142, Olympia, WA 98504-3142. It looks like we are going to have another good salmon season this year. The forecast for summer runs is over 50,000 again. The sockeye season looks good, too. The total number expected to the Columbia is over 400,000 with 97,000 for Lake Wenatchee.
