That was a great article. It just shows what a delicate balance a huge body of water can require and that it is ever changing. I would hate to see this happen to Ontario or Erie but reading the latest update on steelhead mortality makes me wonder how long great runs of steelhead and salmon can go on. I was certainly spoiled after the 2012 and 2013 runs on the Salmon river. From talking with other people areas such as the Black River had a great run of salmon. I guess we will see what happens in the fall.
I've been coming up to the Salmon River for 20 years, bought a trailer a few years ago to make things easier and would like to see what other types of fishing I can do beside salmon and steelhead. I like to fish for smallmouth, trout and any other fish that doesn't have to be trolled to catch. Nothing against trolling for salmon but its just not my thing. I have a 16' 25 HP Alumacraft which is not designed for rough water. I'd like to get some idea of where to go. Thanks. Jim
