~North Santiam creel encountered 213 anglers. There were 13 summer steelhead caught and kept, 69 spring chinook caught and kept, and 3 chinook released.

~South Santiam creel encountered 327 anglers. There were 40 summer steelhead caught and kept, 1 steelhead released, 34 spring chinook were kept, and 6 chinook were released. There was 1 rainbow with mark unknown, 1 cutthroat, 3 trout species unknown, and 7 smolts released. Fishing pressure is mainly at Lebanon Dam, Waterloo, and the Wiley Creek area.

~Foster Lake creel encountered 113 anglers. There was 172 rainbows kept, 31 rainbows released, 1 steelhead smolt released, 1 smallmouth bass kept, 17 smallmouth bass released, and 1 yellow perch kept. Boats did well on Foster and most bank angling was concentrated near the dam.

~McKenzie River creel encountered 174 anglers. There were 7 summer steelhead caught and kept, 10 spring chinook caught and kept, and 3 chinook released. In addition, there were 30 hatchery rainbows kept, 41 hatchery trout released, 1 unmarked rainbow released, and 20 trout species unknown caught. Stomach contents have been examined for 227 marked rainbow trout caught in the McKenzie River. One chinook fry has been observed in these samples. It appears that released rainbow trout are feeding primarily on aquatic insects.

~The Leaburg trap has been defeated to avoid handling of the wild chinook run. To date, there have been 61 marked summer steelhead, 19 unmarked summers, 125 marked spring chinook, 617 unmarked chinook, and 125 rainbows caught in the trap. There were 23 adult summer steelhead, 135 unmarked steelhead smolt, 430 unmarked spring chinook smolt, 12 rainbows, 12 cutthroat, and 9 lamprey captured in the bypass screw trap at Leaburg Dam.

What exactly does this mean, "The Leaburg trap has been defeated to avoid handling of the wild chinook run."? The creel article then goes on to say how many of each fish species were caught in the trap that has been defeated.

<font size="2" face="verdana,arial,helvetica">It means that they are not running the trap anymore so they don't have to handle the wild fish. The following numbers of fish species caught in the trap is the number captured up to the point they stopped the trapping.

Thanks for the great info!!!

The North is still up a bit. forecast shows a great looking drop tomorrow. They have been slaying them on chartruse buzz bombs at the gates bridge if you care to fight that mess... A guy across the street caught a 30" springer that HE said weighed 30 pounds. I think he had some net swelling, but you know how that is.
