ignoring Rob Allen and Generic
I found that interesting as well. Do you suppose that if might possibly have something to do with the length of time that hatchery smolts take to reach the ocean when compared to wild steelhead smolts? That is, hatchery steelhead smolts spending more time in both the Skagit river and the Puget Sound when compared to out migrating wild steelhead smolts. I am just speculating of course. Like you, I am still digesting all this information.
