Flawed rationale in WSC's proposed boat bans? (Part 1)

  1. wow, in montana i spend close to 800 bucks. 3 different agencies, plus the required liability insurance, before i can even start my season. at least WA is guide friendly :D
     
  2. Did you read the proposed rule changes? They do not suggest banning all boats. They propose no fishing from a boat, in relatively small sections of the rivers in question, from feb1 until Nov. 30 ( O.P. rivers). People don't like change, but like it or not it's coming. I am thankful we have organizations like WSC that are being pro-active in trying to save not only the fishery, but the fish from disaster.
     
  3. Has there ever been a rule proposal to WDFW for stricter requirements for guides?
     
  4. Yes. The departmental response was "caveat emptor." The department doesn't think it should get involved in regulating business beyond what is necessary for conservation. However, they don't apply that philosophy to all aspects of fish management.
