FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT
By CHARLES V. STANTON
Will the Umpqua river enjoy a big run of silverside
salmon in the fall of 1950?
Biologists find hopeful indications.
Tally of silverside salmon at the Winchester counting
station shows an unusually high percentage of jacks. The
jack is a male salmon migrating ahead of his normal four
year cycle. Presence of more than average numbers of jack
salmon Indicates that the 1951 migration, from which these
fish come, is larger than normal, according to Ross New
comb, game department resident biologist, although the
1947 migration dropped to 1010 fish, which would normally
presage a decrease next year.
Biologists have been making a study of forecasts based
on jack salmon percentages, Newcomb says, but so far,
while evidence is on the favorable side, the theory is too
new for acceptance as a proven fact. But it is believed that
a high percentage of jacks presages an increased run the
following year. At least, biologists will be watching next
year's silverside run for further proof of the theory.
Here's another interesting question :
What effect has removal of commercial fishing intensity
had on salmon migration ?
The answer to that question is still several years in the
future, but we have a "straw in the wind" to be used as a
basis for guesswork.
In 1946, the first year silverside salmon were tallied at
the Winchester counting station, 1379 adults went over the
board prior to Dec. 15.
This is the return year of the 1946 migration and the
Winchester count for the comparable period stands at 1330,
or 49 fish less than in 1946. Thus the run, has, at least,
But other factors point to a much better condition.
The migration this year, due to low and warm water, was
extremely late. Many fish, which might otherwise have
gone through the Winchester counting station, did not
. come into the river in time to reach the upper waters.
Check of spawning beds in the lower river show four
times as many salmon on those beds as observed in any
previous year. Thus it is evident that the 1946 migration
not only reproduced itself but made a substantial gain and,
in addition, will, given normal conditions during the next
four years, produce a much larger migration for the suc
There is every reason to believe, therefore, that the re
moval of commercial fishing intensity will show a very
beneficial effect on future salmon migrations.
Winchester Bay Sports Fishery
The biologists also have some interesting figures on the
Winchester Bay sports fishery of the past season.
The study shows 18,107 sports anglers making 7,243
boat trips and taking 4,913 salmon, totalling 58,665 pounds.
The chinook salmon catch included 1,153 fish totalling
24,152 pounds, an average of 21 pounds per fish, and 3,760
silverside salmon, totalling 34,513 pounds, an average of
9 pounds per fish.
Breaking these figures down into individual records,
gives an average of 2Vi fishermen per boat, three-tenths
of a fish for each fisherman, or 3'4 pounds per fisherman.
Checks of equipment show that the average fisherman
had a capital investment of $416 in gear, boats, motors,
camping equipment, etc., or more than $7Vi million spent
in outfitting for recreation.
Studies have not been made to dale into the actual return
to communities of the lower river from the Winchester Bay
sports fishery, but some of the businessmen in that area
have made unofficial estimntes that profits obtained from
sports anglers during the Winchester Bay season amounted
to around $2Vj million.
Investments in new camp ground facilities, stores, theater,
and other businesses catering to the sports fishery at Win
chester Bay during the year will add from $100,000 to
$150,000 to the county's assessed valuation. The Winchester
Bay area probably will have twice as many visitors next
year as were present during the past season.
When a person begins to digest these figures, it is ob
vious that money spent to develop receational facilities within
the county is good, sound business, reflected in increased
