I know my fish bro. they were all trout i didn't hook into any smolt. If i did i would move to another hole.
I was going after steelhead and you can fish for steelhead/salmon/trout year round on the mac and willy bro.

The 4th sat in april is when you can use bait and start keepin trout.

Yeah I went on Tuesday and there was a crazy big hatch going on so the trout were going crazy! Was fishing for steelhead (obviously) but EVERY cast with a spinner came a trout. In three hours caught and released (all unharmed) over 40 trout. One was a steelhead smolt which I left the hole as soon as I let it go. Was hoping to get into another early summer but no luck. But it was still very fun catching all those trout!
