This photo is typical of how it was, back in the day when fishermen could walk across the backs of steelhead and Salmon in the Gualala River. No one considered conservation, because there were so many fish.

Unfortunately with habitat degradation and people all killing their limit, things have changed radically. Now that the regulations require catch and release, maybe with some habitat restoration we can have runs like that again for our grandkids.
