45 wild steelhead with 16 shipped to Reiter. Presumably for broodstock? That's an awful return. 10 or 15% of what it was 10 years ago. Even then, many would say those were bad years.
10-15% of the return with 0% of the planting. They stopped shipping clipped steelhead over the falls a few years back. That was one of the big arguments against this brood stock program. The naturalized run was dependent on hatchery fish to sustain it.
