I would like to think that several of them do hold over. The big challenge is for enough of them to maintain or stay ahead of the depletion and take rate for them to thrive.
There are so many factors that come in to play in this equation. Additionally; many of these influences are trendy and happen under varying circumstances. So; there could be a few good years of fish hold over and then a complete drop-off due to a unique event. It seems to be a fragile ecosystem for trout habitation year-over.
I wish there would be a golden solution to help protect or improve the tail-water for trout habitat. Maybe some of the fishermen that have many years on this water will help contribute to this post and elaborate better than I have...(?)
