Hmmmm

I'm wondering if the reports of lethargic fights and steelhead holding in slower water, especially on the Skagit and Sauk could be due to the inreased level of suspended solids still in the river. This could be affecting the ability to recieve oxygen through the gills. It would be expected that the suspended material would drop out in slower water and the fish may be able to find more oxygen in these lies.

Just a thought.
