We found the estimate in the "Washington State Salmon and Steelhead Stock
Inventory" (SASSI) report on Yakima summer steelhead. That report refers to:
Smoker, W.A. 1956. Evaluation of the potential salmon and steelhead
production of the Yakima River to the commercial and recreational fisheries.
Report the the Washington Department of Fisheries. 19pp.
I don't have a copy of the Smoker report, but someone in WDF should be able
to get it for you.
