More Field Work

I have really started to get into "humpy fever"!  Humpy is of course the nickname for a pink salmon as they get ready to spawn.  The males get a pronounced hump pn their backs and a hooked snout.  This one was a male around 3 pounds which seems to be the going size for them this season.  It was a really nice and bright specimen. Though this is not tiny, they typically are a bit bigger than this.  Pinks are on a two year cycle, that is, they live for two years before they spawn.  In Washington they span only in odd numbered years, so 2016 there will not be a season.  Get them while you can!
