Dotting the sky with the loop.
From a few years back on the Clearwater, this is that little reminder that Steelhead season is but a few short weeks away. Dam counts are on the rise, but it remains to be seen if this run's early component was late, or just isn't coming.
The GRAPH that measures this year's return has it between the 10 year average and last year's return. Last year wasnt the greatest, but results dont happen unless you have a fly in the water.
Keep your fingers crossed. The Chinook runs were late this year, so hopefully the same story for Steelhead.
On the good news front, the wild component to this run is over 50% so far.
All in all, I'll still be swinging a fly this fall and winter.
