Where can the B-Run Steelhead Dam Counts be found?

I can only find a break out between Wild and Hatchery Steelhead on the Dam counts for returning fish. I have read articles on the number of B-Run fish coming over the Dams but I have not been able to find that information any place.

thanks for your time!

Answer

The ladder counts at the dams don't make a distinction between "A" (steelhead that spend 1 year in the ocean) versus "B" (2 or 3 years in ocean) steelhead.  Estimates on the ratio of A to B steelhead are made at some of the dams based on PIT tag data and random stamping of adults at the ladders but not published on real-time websites.

You can see steelhead run information on our webpage at:  https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/fish/?getPage=122 .
