    Also they may have 'glassed' you from a distance and saw that you haven't retained any fish or aren't doing anything explicitly illegal and moved on.

    It think if they changed the laws so that money from tickets (or at least a large portion) went directly back to salaries for more enforcement we would see lots more on river checks.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I missed the area/timing combo that allows the sockeye fishermen to keep on using what they have been.


    The tribes sockeye fishing days are limited by their expected incidental take of ESA chinook. If the chinook weren't present, they would have scheduled more days of sockeye fishing.

    That is unlikely to happen, at least it seems to me. Getting a bureaucrat or politician to let go of money is a real hard thing to do.

    And when they want a raise because what they are getting isn't enough to buy more crack.
