    I wish we had sea run browns here. I wonder if they could be introduced?

    TB, hello...according to some info you have in US in some places. If I remember well, the Connetquot river is one of them.

    I don't think you want to introduce them into the NW.... we have enough problems with non native introduced species as it is.

    Nice to hear mention of the Connetquot. I fished the Connetquot River often and also the nearby Carmens. We occasionally did catch sea run browns below the hatchery while fishing for brook trout. Beautiful little river in an unexpected place. I spent many a day there on my favorite beat #19 and often volunteered to "muck out" the hatchery ponds. Beautifully colored Brookies and Big Browns with very prominent markings. We called the big browns "kabollas".
