I agree with Humpty, not based on anything I've actually seen, but on something a friend told me a few years back. He apparently got word that ODFW caught and tagged some steelhead somewhere near Gold Beach (mouth of the Rogue), and 4 days later they were accounted for at Lost Creek Lake, which is 215 miles upstream. Those fish acclimated in seconds!
