What do you all think about the sealion situation in the Columbia? I see the chinook run still isn't passing Bonnevile as of today. Could be the river temp? I am trying to follow this situation as best I can, I was out in March and bank fished right below the Bonnevile dam for sturgeon and in just a few hours we saw four oversize sturgeon taken by sealions. <!--graemlin::eek:--> Don't know how much the breeding population of sturgeon can take? Seems the sealions stick around till late May before returing to their breeding grounds. How much affect do you guys think they are having on the salmon run?
