Discussion in 'Steelhead' started by BDD, Jul 12, 2011.
Pan, thanks for the info to the similar thread...I missed it.
Inland, I plan to go north regardless of any numbers down here or any predictions up north. That is an annual must. However, regarding total numbers most times the Snake dwarfs the Skeena in adult steelhead returns but still I point the vehicle north. And it is not necessarily the fish size but the total experience.
Still, I hope for a good showing down here to keep me entertained the rest of the time I'm not north and that hopefully wild fish can be recovered in time to be de-listed.
And finally, this is a great quote but I've found folks from BC anyway to be pretty good dudes.
look at the counts now http://www.fpc.org/currentdaily/HistFishTwo_7day-ytd_Adults.htm
They have really taken off. Must have been all the high water holding them back.
Anyone know water temps above Bonneville?
Counts over Bonneville are looking better today only 80,000 behind last year and 26,000 behind the 10 year average. The Ratio behind is getting better so they may be a bit late.
only 8 months till I'm back here
until then anyone know where I can find a job close to steelhead?
........the Costco near the Portland airport maybe?
(sorry, I have a sick sense of humor)
inland, what is with pumping the skeena?? do you own the tavern in terrace? cool it, dude...
ummmm.... ummm... Nice fish!
thanks, I guess what I'm saying is that steelhead 11 months a year, whatever the numbers is sweeter than steelhead for 2 or 3 weeks a year!
I think his message was "hey everybody look over there!" while quietly going fishing!
Dont hijack the thread with BS powdermonkey. We've all seen your fish.....its cool, man.
Please re-boot your sarcasm meter. Just having a go to wind a few up. If this little thread starts a mass exodus from Snake River tribs to Skeena & tribs...geebus WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS TEN YEARS AGO?
Yes..historic low runs coming. Bad angling on this side of the state. BC does sound like a better option for all of you.
