Smelt are scarce this season. There
are none in the city today and W. S.
Fitts the fish man has a theory in ex
planation of the unusual scarcity this
season. Some writers of psychology
claim that on account of this Ix'iug leap
year, the female smelt will not go up
the Cowlitz river, as hns been the cus
toms in years past. In fact, they di
get ns far as the Cowlitz, but turned
gnck into the Columbia where they nre
only be caught with gill nets. Mr. Fitts
claims that the unusually large num
ber of gill net fishermen lias so con
fused the leaders of tho smelt that they
failed to recognize the Cowlitz river
when they camp to it. However, the
fact remains that the smelt did not go
up the Cowlitz, that 'so far smelt have
been caught only by gill nets nnd Hint
they nre unusually senree this season.
