Summer Steel head and trout
More trout, really, but first an update on all your work.
Thanks for all the letters supporting selective gear on the Hoh. Fish and wild life noticed, and I got a message of “please stop, we hear you”. That does not mean they will move forward, but it means we got noticed.
If sport fishing is to continue on the Hoh, the river must become selective gear entirely year round, summer would be a good start.
I hope you will all join me in pushing forward on this for the next 24 months. Until the end of the next rule change cycle. Its past time to make real change in fish management here, and more and more sport fishermen, the tribes, the park and the guides seem to be on one side, with the WDFW standing alone on the other.
Steelhead season is off with a whimper, maybe its the low water, I have no idea, but the numbers on the opener were unimpressive. The early run should continue to move in until late July. A little rain might help?
So I did some more trout fishing, which was, well great. Plenty of small fish to 12 inches and a hand full of 15 to 18 inchers on dry’s and streamers. An occasional steelhead or salmon happens by we catch him too.
