    Well....at least to me!

    Looks like summer fish are trending towards higher populations since the introduction of the hatchery broodstock which are taken from wild fish at Winchester dam.
    The winter fish look really stable with the only real variable being ocean conditions affecting returns. Now that there is no longer any logging on the federal forest land in the North Umpqua headwaters I would asume those numbers might increase with the improved habitat!

      Look at the summer steelhead numbers between 84 and 90. I was in Roseburg at the time but not fishing....darn.

        Ya, hatchery production was in full swing.....I can't get past the "Good ole' days" back before there were hatchery fish....pretty low returns....maybe the good Ole' days weren't as good as they are remembered now! I would take 84-90 over 46-59 anyday!

          Hmmm...46-59 was a result of logging everything over 12" to send into the Pacific Theatre during WWII for pilings. Nothing kills fish better than mud. The whole valley was logged and I know several local companies who made muchas Million $ in that endeavor and now own most of the valley.
