Lightbulb Training Steelhead to take dry flies...?

On another forum a member was questioning whether or not you could take summer runs on a dry fly; there were some who stated it was possible for natives but nearly impossible for hatchery fish. Why?

I knew a farmer who trained his dairy cows to only crap in the barn's gutters. I've known people who taught their cat to use the toilet, somewhat human style. Aside from the usual, sit, stay, roll-over; I've trained my rotty to fetch and deliver items wherever I direct. Training...

Is it possible to train the hatchery fish to take surface offerings? You know, conditioned response to variously colored, floating pellets? Any biologist/behaviorists want to take this question on?
