There are only four on there that I know about but I think the Siletz is lacking some XX's.

In the format you have here the grande ronde isn’t correct. How do you tell which x aligns which month?

I didn't create it. So I can't change anything. It was created by the folks at ODFW. So it would all be according to data that they compiled, from their research.

It's a bit inconvenient; but if you scroll to the top for the month you can figure it out. Or simply count from left to right, starting with January in the left column.

I understand it if I go to the link but the original post did not have a link.

Does Tenmile/Eel Creek refer to creeks coming out of Eel and Tahkenitch lakes? or is it refering to the Tenmile creek north of Florence? Inquiring minds want to know.

MY guess would be it is referring to Eel/Tenmile Creeks that are coming out of Tenmile and Eel lakes around Lakeside
