I was doing a little research about the few summer hatchery steelhead programs which still occur in Puget Sound streams and came across the WDFW data for the Whitehorse Facility on the N. Fork Stilly. https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/score/score/hatcheries/hatchery_details.jsp?hatchery=Whitehorse Based upon the 2007-2009 runs, It states that 80k smolts produced and 121 hatchery adults produced. TOTAL, including sport and commercial harvest, not just the number making it back to the hatchery facility. A survival rate of .15%. Is this a joke or is it just bad data? Compare that to the Reiter facility which states 238k smolts produced and 2622 hatchery adults. A survival rate of 1.10% So Skykomish summer hatchery fish have a survival rate 7 times higher than that of the N. Fork Stilly? I apologize if this has been discussed before, but I feel like I must be missing something. Either the numbers are correct and the smolts are performing horribly or there are actually a lot more adult fish produced than their data indicates. If there truly is considerably more returning adults, and if the point of hatchery raised steelhead is to support catch and kill sportfishing opportunities, why tell the public their chances of catching a hatchery steelhead in the N. Fork Stilly are effectively nil?
