Hey guys! Finally got a chance to do a collab with my fellow addict Flatbrim Pescador. We got to go out and get some fishing in on the river for steel and we slayed them! Thereís lots of fish around right now! He made me wear his maga gear while we fished but itís cool we got some good collab video footage. When we got to the spot on the river seabeckraised talked about there was 5 guys there already who told us the spot is too crowded so we went below them and started to cast. They got mad at first because I hooked a fish and they didnt but then we all took turns casting in order on the gravel bar and we all got to fish the spot together with no problems! Seabeckraised you should come with us next time and see how good it works. I got this 10 pound chromer on a ez bead and the new addicted steelhead worms. You guys should check them out. I think they go on sale during the merch drop on July 10! They slay the steel! I also caught this weird looking fish I never seen before. Iím going to slap this puppy on the grill next to the steelhead for a side by side taste compare!

What do you think the barrier dam construction will do to the fishing?

I don't expect it to have any significant effect on fishing. Or perhaps I should re-think that. I was there yesterday and got skunked. Where did all those damn fish go?

Don't they have a weir at the dam? What happens to the fish that were going to the weir when the weir is under construction? Do they just swim by or do they stack up below?

The weir that is the Barrier Dam has remained in place during the construction. If anything, the weir is even harder for summer runs to jump because all the flow is concentrated to one-half the full width. This raises the height that a fish would have to jump even higher. This is probably a good thing because they probably have the "electric fence" that is embedded in the weir crest turned off during the construction work. I'm guessing about that, but I think it's a good guess because part of the work is to replace the weir crest. I make this comment because, in the past, when the electric fence was turned off, summer steelhead were known to be able to jump and clear the Barrier Dam, so they ended up in the river reach between Barrier Dam and Mayfield Dam.

The upshot is that the Barrier Dam is functioning pretty normally during the construction project, and fish stacking up below it move to either side and locate one of the fish ladder entrances that lead to the fish separator where they are collected for the hatchery. Most of the over 1300 summer steelhead collected so far this year have been recycled downstream to the I-5 boat launch.
