More inconsistencies by WDFW..... Almost every river on their list has threatened or "depressed" status, and rarley meet their escapement goals....yet they still allow fishing on most all of these rivers.... Catch and keep or catch and release. So to put it mildly... WDFW is consistently inconsistent
The probelm for us is that DFW doesn't value C&R. They go to great effort and allocate portions of allowable take in order to allow people to exploit (bonk) 'harvestable surplus' of healthier species. But, they won't make the effort to allocate additional impacts to c&r. Just doesn't rank high enough on their priority list/constituent give away hierarchy.
