I had my 6 month check-up yesterday with my Cardiologist. His Father was the longtime manager of the fish hatchery at Orofino Idaho on the Clearwater. He told me that his Dad and the current manager of the hatchery had an unwritten agreement with the Indian officials (Nez Pierce) that required them to only fin clip 80% of the hatchery fish to allow more returned fish for the tribe. There has been a lot of talk about the number of wild steelhead that fishermen are having to release in the Snake and the Clearwater this year. Maybe the're not all wild fish after all.
