I used to know it all---but now that I'm older I seem to forget it all.

Bob. After reading what you wrote made me think of the hatchery returns in the Puget Sound streams this year. Did they plant the fish like they said they did or was the planting just a ploy to make all of us fishers happy. Because I checked most of the returns this year and some of them are in just double figures. Are they trying to tell us that this is because they all died in the ocean. I just can't buy that excuse.

I remember one year that there was a big fish kill on the N/Fork Stilly. Right after they released the smolts they all started dying. There were dead or dying fish all over the river below White horse rearing ponds. It's times like these that you give thanks for wild fish but this years there don't even seem to be any of them.
