    I was wondering if it was actually true. I have never seen anything over 10,000 before that is a lot of fish.

    I just saw a report by a WDFW spokesman that the one-day record lasted only one day.
    28,314 steelhead were counted at Bonneville yesterday. Sweet!

    I know, I wouldn't even consider fishing if there were only 18,000 sockeye passing a day :rofl:
