I'm actually a bit surprised that there isn't more of this happening at Chico, after witnessing the total disregard for regulations the first time I was there. Snagging was the norm and openly accepted. It was weird.
Snagging was the norm at a spot on the Satsop where a new fishing acquaintance took me. He'd told me the Coho fishing was usually good there. Access was thru private property, and everyone there but me was either flossing or snagging, and seemed to know each other. I had to walk downstream and fish by myself, because I couldn't stand it. Got skunked that day, but I did have one good grab, that I misssed. I can't believe that he didn't warn me ahead of time. I wouldn't have gone. I'm not fishing with that guy again!
