RE:Winter Steelhead Tactics


Thanks for your insights about the Elwa dam situation. I must admit I would not have thought of comparing the Elwa to the Toutle. You make an excellent point about the adaptability and just plain survivability of our steelhead and salmon. There are still a few native Elwa Chinook left. I would hope they would migrate up stream when the dams are removed also. Can you imagine a 90 or 100 pound Chinook on a fly rod? I shattered an eight wt. rod on a 40 pounder. Inexperience will do that.
