They are starting to head up the SR now. Seeing a few here and there out back. Nasty tasting fish but fun to catch.

Moving up already? Kinda early isn't it? It's been chilly for a couple days,
but I didn't think it was enough to pull them up.

That is a hobby I don't see myself getting to do too much in the future. I focus in deer in the fall, and I have a new hobby that occurs during the spring melt when I chased browns and steelies. ;)

No its not early at all. When I was a kid I was so dang excited waiting for August 15th. Back then that was the date you could start salmon fishing. There was always a few fish around. No one around but the locals. I will fish a little for them till Sept. 27 th when bow season opens, which is about the time the crowd shows up. The big influence is water flow. They release water every two weekends for rafters and kayakers. Which drains the reservors. Something they need to stop doing. Come september theres a lack of water to release. But during August salmon will come up in the high water, and die off when it drops to 100 cfm. Locals have nicknamed this time of year Salmon Sunburn season. Water gets so low there backs are out of the water when they shut the dams, high water temps and lack of oxygen, not good.

Good info 3rd gen.

Yes, manipulating natural water cycles has a lot of negative effects.

Yep they are messing with the fishery and there local economy. These rafters and kayakers bring such little revenue with them its nuts they are still doing it. They get bussed in and bussed out. Now the salmon season dumps 14+ million dollars into the local economy in just a few months. They are messing with a good thing.

I guess this issue of stream augmentation is a concern shared across the whole eastern/midwest region. We go around and around with the Army Corp. of engineers here in southern Ohio. sometimes i think they get together and discuss what is the worst possible thing we can do to anglers and then do it. Yet sport boaters seem to be able to get water releases for a fart.....aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggg don't encourage my disdain any more.


Oh as a side note, I am a retired fisheries manager.

Army Corps (as a whole, not individual people) has done a number of things that I do not agree with that has screwed up a number of ecosystems, especially way back in the olden-days. I feel that the agency is changing it's ways, as there are a number of good people in the agency now that look towards at the entire ecosystem functions to make sure what they are doing is "right". But, it is largely an agency of engineers that want to "control nature" for the benefit of humans only.

Note: I realize some of these statements may not be agreed upon by others, and if I offended anyone, especially currently-employed corps folks, I apologize.

Oh, on a side note, I am an early career wetland/habitat ecologist. :)
