RE:Winter Steelheading around Seattle

Brian,

While not being in the Seattle area, The rivers in the greater Portland area have kicked out higher ratios of wild fish this winter. The majority of fish I have seen and heard of have been natives. I don't know if this is due to a lower hatchery run than expected or a better than "normal" native return. I'll be optomistic and believe the latter. I do know of one near 18lb and one over 20lb this year that always keeps the blood pumping. Juro, thanks for the vine.
