It should be if not maybe a thin layer, stopped at grant yesterday 6 cars were down there one guy told me he got a smaller one earlier, it's a little high but you can still get a good drift off.

By the way, Skamania are a "SUMMER" run fish.

So the fish start to run in late June & July all depending on a west wind for several days and rain.

As soon as the water cools in the harbor they will come in.

A small shrimp 5-6' under a bobber is all you need on the piers

Skamania???

Outstanding fighters

Great for trollers and pier fishermen

Better sharpen you skills and bring an A Game to catch them in the creeks and rivers. I am not a novice and hours to catch ratio on Skam's is going to go way up in terms of hours fished. Give your presence away on a hole and the game is over on a hole. Just leave and come back in 45 min because they just shut down when they know you are there.

The only ones who catch them consistently in the creeks and rivers are very knowledgeable and have a perfect presentation.

If you are lucky enough to hook in a creek its berserko time. They are flying torpedoes that will test the best fisherman and are great escape artist.

Be careful what you wish for.

Frustration usually prevails.

Being a river/creek guy i am all too familiar. I would say its close, maybe slightly more domestics enter the rivers than C4's...Not to say some years had more than the other, but as an average domestics are more common. That being said, i have also caught a lot of C4's before the rivers lock up, under the ice, and early spring after ice out. It would be nice to see more numbers of C4's than the domestics, as they are a strain that gets bigger, and better fighting IMO. 

Ah yes, skamania, one of my favorite fish to target. Not really worth the efforts around here, although right conditions (last summer would have been one), there are a selected few creeks and rivers that will get fish. Some of these creeks and rivers i have caught them in do not receive a skamania stocking. I dont think the skamania program here will do what Indiana's or some of Michigan's program did, but it will provide a year round fishery off our pierheads, and a better fall steelhead program. Truly the best fighting fish in the Great Lakes IMO. Nothing like hooking a upper teens or low 20+lb summer steel.

We will know if this skamania program is working 2-4 years down the road if we get prevailing west winds during the summer. Once cold water is along the North and South pier in Racine, you should be able to float some shrimp/ale's under a slip float and get into these fish.
