I dont understand the outrage over killing hatchery fish. Jamey, they do propagate, and thats the problem. When hatchery steelhead stray, their genetics enter the gene pool, making the wild steelhead less fit. So I say good job bonking the hatchery fish, anyone who is an advocate for fish knows its the right thing to go. Congrats, hope they were tasty.
PS-alot of the folks outraged about this are Great Lakes fellas, so they dont have the same issues we do in the northwest. But hatchery=bad for wild.
