Totals

Yearly totals actualy give a better understanding of fish distribution as a species moves up the system, as an example:
Daily total
Oct 05
Dalles - Chinook / 12000 - W Steelhead / 6000 - Total Steelhead / 25000
John Day - Chin / 12000 - W Steelhead / 9000 - Total Steelhead / 33000
Mc Nary - Chin / 14000 - W Steelhead / 9000 - Total Steelhead / 36000

The amounts daily seem to be growing the further upriver you go!

Yearly Totals
Jan 8 - Oct 8 '05
Dalles - Chinook / 355000 - W Steelhead / 68000 - Total Steelhead / 224500
John Day - " 292000 " 66400 " 209000
Mc Nary - " 240600 " 50300 " 188500

This I believe to be a truer representation of distribution
