". . . Some of the tribes are pushing for a 100% mortality rate on C&R steelhead. . . "
Couldn't help but notice this. OK, that's just stupid. Mainly because I know of one tribal steelhead broodstock program that over 4 years experienced a 2% incidental mortality rate, and most would agree that the stresses of broodstocking (tubing, tank truck transport, raceway holding, and handling) exceeds that of CNR fishing.
