While the wild Spring Chinook run remains viable on the McKenzie River, recent misguided efforts to reduce and/or eliminate hatchery augmentation of the Springer run may eventually threaten the local harvest of Spring Chinook. To date, no objective evidence has been presented that proves that the McKenzie hatchery-reared salmon actually threaten the wild run. Certainly human impacts, dams, roads, culverts, etc all negatively influence habitat and the natural processes. Hatchery salmon however, increase the total number of fish in a system that for all practical purposes, has been permanetly altered by humans and now supports but a mere fraction of the total historic fish population. Humans and other life have benefitted from this incredible food source for eons.

Kelly & Bill had a day to remember landing the famed Elk River Hawgs they had only previously heard about. The short-lived rise in the river provided a couple days of hot fishing before the river dropped back to low and clear conditions. I just hope the boys had a good supply of Ben Gay after quite a day!
