Copper River Salmon - Phx?

It's that time of year again. As former Seattle-ites these are red letter weeks on our calendars. We start drooling and looking forward to the season a couple months ahead...

Tough start to the season this year is making for high prices. I saw some available at AJ's on Saturday at $43/lb. OK...even for this not available for very long, I really really love it item...I can't bring myself to pay that. Hopefully the prices in the markets will go down in the next couple weeks...and some more markets get it in this year.

We're thinking about trying to find some for dinner tonight somewhere though(oddly $40 as an entree portion in a nice restaurant sits better for me than paying the AJ's price to make it at home.) I'm going to call McCormick's since they usually have it and I remember from last year someone(silverbear?) mentioning Kincaids as a possibility. We use to head to the Rockfish here in Chandler as without fail they brought it at a reasonable price but they closed in the last year. Nothing else there was notable really but a piece of simply grilled CR Salmon at a reasonable price was reason to visit a few times each May/June and right now at least I'm missing them.

Anybody seen it anywhere yet this year?
