Bonneville Dam Steelhead numbers

Very early, but the the last two years overall trend was in line with May numbers. So far much better, specially Wild Steelhead ( as of May 7 )

Oh no! Please delete post, or knock on wood, or sprinkle blood on your computer while shaking a voodoo rattle, just please do not p**s off the steelhead gods like we have been doing the past few years. Let's just keep any optimism to ourselves and quietly cross our fingers. Sacrificing an old pair of waders in the campfire to the great god Mykiss would not hurt.

Of course, this is all tongue in cheek?

I admire the optimism but way too small of a sample set to infer much yet. Iíve been watching them for a couple of weeks. If the trend holds for another month, I will be more optimistic.

This is why I stated it is very early.

Saying that, Pacific conditions has improved, since hot water 120 feet deep blob of 2014-16, disappeared in early 2017. Last year only during summer water in part of northern Pacific and Gulf of Alaska was 1-2 C above normal, but it was only 20 feet deep , but during fall and winter top water temp was in general at or below average.
