Forcasters predict that the earliest scenario would see increasing numbers of Chinook salmon entering the lower river during the last week in May, with the first significant jump in abundance around the end of the first week in June. These estimates and the numbers behind them were released in the 2016 Yukon River Salmon First Outlook .

NOAA Fisheries and Alaska Department of Fish and Game, with support from the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), use spring weather and other environmental data summarized on the AOOS website to estimate the arrival of Chinook salmon on the river delta.
