okay so I know this is not a valid scientific piece of data seeing as its such a small sample but remember how the north fork has been shut down since the end of july? All because of projected low silver return even though any real mortality ( if any) from steelhead flyfisherman is a joke at best. Well water has cleared up this morning and in front of my house there is a larger school of silvers than i have seen in many years. Probably thirty plus all told. I have been watching this hole for 35+ years and while there have been years with this many i dont think i have seen this many for twenty or more. Gee guess it was from keeping all those flyfishing poachers off the river in july eh?
