  • They've closed down fishing the Deschutes River in Oregon for spring salmon. The fish count is supposed to be down to 400, which

    They've closed down fishing the Deschutes River in Oregon for spring salmon. The fish count is supposed to be down to 400, which is pretty sad. Is this happening a lot around the country?

    Our streams in the Appalachian mountains have seen rough times due to the drought. Streams with big fish were hit hard by low water levels and high temps this past summer and the summer before.

      Same her in Cal. A number off rivers are closed or restricted. They even shut down the offshore salmon season because the count for salmon returning to spawn was so low. Not good!

              As far as steelhead, most of the declining numbers are on the West Coast. Here in the midwest, the Great Lakes tribs are doing great, then again, these aren't 'native' fish. I spent a few weeks this past summer doing renovation work on steelhead spawning grounds in CA, and it was disturbing to see what habitat destruction coupled with entirely overpopulated seal numbers do to these steelhead. It really is a shame, then again, that's why I felt obligated to do my part.

                Beekeeper, our trout streams here in NC were also lousy during the summer months. The warden said that there wasn't enough water to stay cold, so the water got too warm and the trout died off. They only stock in spring, so this ruined fishing for the rest of the year. It was exceptionally good while it lasted and I caught limits on several occasions.

                  Hopefully this year 2010 will be better for trout fishing here in NC!!!
