Yeah isnít it ironic that the river in Wild Fish Conservancyís back yard is struggling to make escapement for the two listed species in Puget Sound, wild winter steelhead and fall Chinook.  It must be the hatcheries fault.  Oh wait, there are no salmon hatcheries on the Snoqualmie.
A significant number of fish are harvested in Alaska and Canada.  Add in pinnipeds, Birds, Ocean impacts, tribal harvest and more.  It is amazing that these fish are still alive.

One of the dads on my kidís club volleyball team is a fisheries biologist on the sound. Iíll ask him what he knows. Seems to be pretty in the loop, even if itís not stuff heís directly involved with. Iíll see him Memorial Day weekend.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

This seems ridiculous.. are the natives going to stop gill netting at the mouth of the snohomish? And out of curiosity why would they close down trout fishing. I mean couldn't simple rules such as hook size be ok? Or even make it selective gear rules temporarily. I can gurantee half the people who fish trout won't hear about this, and I'm sure the guiding service up the sky forks just had his summer ruined.. It sure seems to me when covid hit and all rivers were closed for non natives and no licenses were returned.. people just started saying screw the laws and with lack of wardens this just doesn't seem realistic

The Sky was dead today. Only fished it for a few hours this AM but did not see or hear of a fish being touched. Plenty of boat and bank fishers but slim pickins. I won't be back out this weekend. Maybe if there is an opening letter in June.

We fished yesterday as well. Know of a handful of kings and one summer run caught. We got two downstream winter steelhead and a couple cutthroat. Tough tough fishing. Water was lower and clearer than I'd have liked.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.
