I think I will buy the hard cover version and have him sign that, since it is the current GLs steelhead fly fishing classic IMHO.

If they change the schedule again don't tell us.

I am just going to look at the T+T spey rods anyway and cry.

Looking forward to the carp lecture, will have to send Quentin a summary of key points

I know there is great carp fly fishing to be had in GL country got to have a contingency if there is another poor skamania summer run in 2003. I doubt it though, imagine how big they are getting in the lake with this mild winter.

We could still have a poor run of skamania this year, it all depends on rain andheat.

The fish could come in this spring on high unfishable water spawn and shoot back out to the lake.

Seen it happen before.

I'll keep you posted on any changes to the schedule.

Please don' t talk so negative we are going to have great runs this spring and summer just like most of the past 23 years I have been here.

Be positive !

Just being truthful is all.

Seen the fish come in on high water many times, spawn and dash back out to the lake.

Thats probably why we have so many fish, its the end result of all those unmolested years.

wait wait...

MJYP,

I don't know what you are reffering to as spring and summer fish, but I will just offer what I know since I do alot of research on steelhead behavior.

First of all summer run fish do not spawn in the summer months, they spawn in early to mid winter, usually December-February. When skamania were planted years ago, the fish stock consisted of three fish, two females over 32" and one male over 36" that would be the broad stock of the entire species here in the GL region. One female was an early runner(june-mid july), the other a later runner(later july - september). These fish enter the rivers not to spawn, but to "holdover", feed and mainly because gentics were altered to create this fishery. Therfore saying this you are correct about skamania entering the rivers during a spate, cooler water flows, etc. but just as easily they will slip out to the lake when conditions are less than ideal(ex: water temp, condtions, rising or falling baro, etc). I have learned this from expirence from GL surf flyfishing, where I walk the beaches looking for mouths that can be full or absent of fish depending on many factors.

If you were speaking about the spring run, you may be correct on smaller tribs, but usually on larger river systems you can expect fish to stage longer since the river would usually be longer. Even if we did have rain for a straight week or two weeks, you would still probably have fish staging when conditions are back to ideal.
