After the last couple of steelhead returns to the Columbia, I would love nothing more than the 2022 return to even come close to the 10-year average. So far it is tracking better than expected. Another positive note is the sockeye returns to the Columbia are substantially higher than the 10-year average. That, coupled with high, cool flows, there is a good chance that many will escape into BC before the thermal barrier sets in. This is great news for the resource (but perhaps not great for Brewster anglers). As one who is affected by this on a professional level, I could not be more pleased with the way things are shaping up.
