I'm also concerned about Squam's future salmon fishery. I don't put the time in that John does (who does), but 2010 was the first year I got salmon skunked on Squam. That was four and half days of fishing. In past years, John would show me what I was doing wrong at the end of the week and put us on the salmon. Not this year. At least the rainbows were biting.
Hopefully the hatchery guy can back up his bravado? Last year this board was consumed with the decline of Winni. It looks like Winni had a resurgence this year. Hopefully Squam can have a similar resurgence in 2011.
Do you think predation has taken the 2009 year class? What predators in Squam could do that? Spike in lake trout? Smallmouth? Disease?
I had a average Spring on Winni...maybe less fish but bigger average size. I am going to dedicate myself to identifying year class this coming spring.
