Juro,

Thanks,looks like our Industrial Revolution after the Civil War did these salmon in as it also did to the New England salmon rivers I suspect.

Thank god the PNW was just being settled at that time and industry did not get to destroy those in the 1800s.

Did not know they tried stocking PNW salmon that early in the 1900s in Lake Ontario. 1933

Hal
