Default Telling trend

Per the Fish Passage Center, springer passage at the falls is exceeding Bonneville by quite a margin, (60 vs 36). And steelhead numbers keep getting better. I have not seen any data on sealion activity at Bonneville, but this trend, if it continues, is certainly telling. Isn't it!!?? Yes. It is early. Time will tell. Keeping fingers crossed that removal will start this fall on the Columbia.

Way too early to make this kind of judgment.
Bonneville numbers peak in April and early May...Willamette Falls numbers climb then, but peak in May.

YTD - Most steelhead and springer over the falls since 2010.

In 2010, 65,000 springers went over the falls...

Yeah, but the flows are way down from normal, usually, or at least often, this time of year the flow is so high that fish don't go over the falls much.

Water temp in OC hovering around 50*, the Columbia averaging 44*
Typically with higher flows water temps increase.
