Being new to the salmon/steelhead scene, I'm trying to understand trends and timing for hitting the rivers. I have a question for you veterans. Considering how little rain we have received in late September and October, is it plausible that there could be a "late" push of salmon into the rivers if we receive some substantial rain? Are fish holding waiting for the right amount of water or will they make the run regardless? If my question is zone specific then I would say that I am asking about the Willamette and NW zones.
