    Thank you Ella yes smelts are a small species of fish that come here every spring. I must say the most amazing part of this record is that the limit a person can catch and keep here is 60.I took one scoop out and had 61. I dont think i could get that close to the limit with one scoop if you offered me a million dollars.
