Brats on the Sky

Got a couple of hours in yesterday on the lower Skykomish. Didn't have any action myself but watched a driftboat pulling plugs take two fish out within 10 minutes of each other. The interesting thing is that both fish were hatchery brats. I didn't get a good look at the first fish other than to see it was dark but the second, was dark and leaking milt all over the place.

I also was suprised that the factory fish were still around this far below the hatchery. I know that another brat was taken in the same spot last weekend as well. A question to long time Sky regulars -- isn't it unusual to have hatchery fish below Monroe this late in the season?
There is no substitute for time on the water.
