3/2/16 update and optimism

Being a steelhead fanatic I always watch passage numbers over Bonneville, even in the winter.   Though I could be dead wrong I’m optimistic, maybe as a fisherman I have to be.  The numbers are exceeding the 10 yr avg. for both total and wild steelhead. These are obviously winter fish which are a poor predictor of the following brood year returns.  Nonetheless, I like seeing positive movement and considering the last 5 or so years the 10 year average has been increasing so if it continues increasing we’ll see some pretty good returns in the near future.  Lot’s more going on here than I understand but positive movement is positive movement.  I like positive movement.
