Checks made before the current series of storm fronts moved in reflected river conditions that were too low and too clear:

• Cowlitz late last week, 47 boat fishermen had 11 winter steelhead, and 32 bank fishermen had 7.

• Bogachiel, Dec. 23-25, 28 fishermen kept 16 hatchery fish and released three.

• Lower Hoh, Dec. 23-25, 63 fishermen released three wild and two hatchery steelhead, and kept 24 hatchery fish.
