    Hi Fysh,

    I live in Washington for a few years and fished Oregon a lot. All of the rivers that I fished required wild Steelhead to be released. They did allow killing of hatchery fish. I just assumed it was State wide but must have been by each river.

    Oregon had one of the most progressive fish management programs I have seen. They were trying to get hatchery fish stopped in some rivers with healthy wild fish. This was fifteen years ago and maybe things have changed.

    Another place I should have not moved from.
