I see that there are 3,000 to 4,000 fewer fish per day over Bonneville this year than the average. Possibly they are a little bit late as were the Chinook earlier in the Spring.
I also note that the DFO's Tyee Steelhead count on the Skeena is not being posted perhaps I am not accessing it correctly any help here?
I usually place about as much hope in late runs as I did in Santa and the Tooth Fairy but the last couple of years there seems to be a time for me to change my view. (Maybe I will let my white beard grow long and get a part time job in December!)

Beau I am using the same site as the last few years and it appears to be the same as the suggeted site from the DFO homepages. Would you please share with me the address that you are using to get access to Tyee counts.

The steelhead aren't late. It is going to be a down year in the Columbia Basin. High water temps (22.8C) at Bonn are also impacting how many move over the first dam.

Thank you for the connection Pescaphile there it is. William I suspected the blazing Sun of late might be a factor but I did not check the temp. With so much information to aid in planning the Fall migration its a wonder I ever get to go fishing anymore!:smokin:
