Sadly the chum salmon return to the Yukon river is not looking good this year. Only 143,000 fall chums have been seen with sonar this is half of last years number. The communities around the Yukon river have been hard hit with poor returns in the last few years and have received emergency funding from the government to help. Hopefully the salmon are just fashionable late as the season has not yet ended.
