**The rapids are flowing and so are the steelhead. These photos were taken of some friends. Neither knew how to take photos with my camera, hence - they are grateful for the memories I have provided here.

Thank you. They are a blast & a workout to catch. Even harder to get them in a net. We get a lot of nonresident fishermen/women after these honkers. It never fails. Each year I see someone trying to net these bruits with an 18 inch trout net! Obviously, this has to be their first experience to this frenzy. You either learn the essentials quickly, keep your footing on the bank, or surrender to defeat and join the converted fresh water beast in his domain.

Though the snow is melting fast and the rapids are roaring down some 30 miles, here in Elk City the Juvenile steelhead are being deposited. Approximately 4 trucks have made their way from our hatchery to this and 2 other locations. It won't be long once introduced to the river, they'll reach their potential growth. I have seen several scurry just a few miles from this location as I must have disturbed the bank when checking my beaver sets. Down river is another story,,, the ocean has set forth the yearly luggers. While some days the river is muddy because of the run-offs, other days yield big dividends to those that pursue such adventure. I anticipate kayaking next, therefore my trapping season has come to a draw - for now.

The truck delivers Juvenile steelhead and deposits them through a pump & hose. Closer examination of this next picture, one can see the swell of steelhead entiring the river.
