RE:Winter Steelhead Tactics
According to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement full restoration of the Chinook run to numbers aproximating historical abundance (31,000 chinook) should occur in 21 to 25 years. It's interesting to note that these projections are without hatchery augmentation or out planting. The draft further states that outplanting may reduce the recovery time by as much as half.
The expectations of steelhead restoration is a healthy run of 10,000 fish in 15 to 18 years.
I'm shopping for retirement property as soon as they blow those suckers!
