Great report... it does indeed sound like a good summer season to me! I remember some unbelievable summer returns... 1986(?) I'll look back thru my records but some years, the SW columbia tribs were packed with steel from May thru the winter run. High teens fish all over the place.
I know if I were still living the blissfull life of a guy with steelhead in his homewaters, this would be a summer I'd be very focused on based on the news so far.
Nothing will stand between me and my autumn trip this year!
