Ladies and Gentlemen. I'm writing an essay this week on this topic. After years of reading about the subject and having conversations with my fishing friends, i've come to a conclusion to the matter. With the information I have dug up on the internet ("Managing Wild and Hatchery Fish in Oregon" , "Hatchery Versus Wild Populations of Steelhead Trout in the Carp River, MI" and "Do hatchery Salmon help or harm the wild ones?" http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/46319_salmon12.shtml) and talking to people recently, I have decided to write why I think that clubbing hatchery steelhead is not the solution to saving thier wild brothers and sisters. Now I want your opinion to this matter.... Anything counts and you won't be able to sway my thoughts on this. I just want to know how my flyfishing family feels about this subject, rofessor WILL HATCHERY STEELHEAD MATE WITH A NATIVE?rofessor Tight Lines!
