    It means nothing. However, if you have been watching the dam counts for the last few decades, then you would have clearly seen that your statement, "there exist more wild fish than hatchery fish in our river systems" (I adjusted your statement for added coherence), is far from true. In fact ~234,000 total steelhead went over Bonneville in 2013, but only ~99,000 were wild fish. That means that the Columbia River tributaries recieved ~135,000 hatchery fish and ~99,000 wild fish........which leads me to my conclusion 135,000>99,000. Math.

    This is a nonsensical post.
    Wild fish and fish from a hatchery are not the same.
    Clearly I'm not intellectual enough to keep up with your train of thought.

    I think FL may have been trying to say that hatchery fish are "wild" fish too. You know like the Quinault tribe would count fish. I think that is what he is saying. It's hard to really be sure with the way he writes.

    Am I correct FL?

    Charles, rather than quote finluver without knowing what he really means, let's allow him to clarify. I certainly know how little I appreciate him quoting me and claiming to know what I mean or speak on my behalf as if we agree. I will patiently wait for finluver to sort this out using his own words, not mine.

    Yah, I know. That's why I asked if I was correct. It's so hard to tell what he means since his language skills are so poor.

    I have in-laws that are "off the boat" They struggle with english at times as it is their second language. Truthfully their language skills are much better than Finluvers even after they ingest a large quantity of Johnny Walker.

    Well Ed, there are more "wild" fish in a river system than the fish we throw in from hatcheries; and it's that short sightedness that is the root of the problem.​
    And it's an "easy read" if all things are not considered.​
    Fair Enough??​

    What the hell? Now you're quoting yourself? At least your nonsense threads and posts are morbidly entertaining:) Kind of like watching a train wreck. I just can't look away.

    Sorry fellas, I would love to reply to your posts, but the WFF SS asked that I quit pickin' on the less fortunate...my thoughts just didn't fall in line with the minority mindset. :cool:
