    Ron McNeal Turtles or universes? I can't decide....

    Stopped by the Elwha in the National Park yesterday and saw a bunch of what-had-to-be Kings. They were thick in the run I saw just into the Park from that little entrance "ticket booth" thing, where the river's all braided up and right by the road. Lots 'o Fish......... I would think this is a very promising event.....

    That is good news, I just read an article, maybe in the Times?, that said they're getting a good initial return and have already met last year's return. Hopefully the trend continues.

    Would these be wild fish?

    I have sorta lost track of what is going on over there.

    I thought the hatchery was put on hold.


    ED: I just read the post about the pinks in the Dunguness. Perhaps there are pinks in the Elwha?

    Thanks for the update, Ron.

    Looking back at Mt. St. Helens and the recovery there and then at the dam removal, it gives one hope.

    Great to hear Ron.... I sure miss that river, hopefully there will still be some resident trout in the upper river after all this is over ( I have my doubts) if I'm still around whenever it reopens, Ha !!! Thanks for the update....
