    Just incase there are folks who don't check the regs, and rely on the magazine, Washington and Oregon Fish and Game for their regs, the new March issuse says that its LEAGLE to keep a wild fish on the Skagit River. Someone made a serious mistake. Skagit is CATCH and RELEASE for wild fish. I'd be surprized if folks didn't read the actual regs, but just in case someone thought there was a rule change, there is a serious typo regarding the few wild Skagit steelhead left.

    I didn't see this posted anywhere else, but I didn't search too hard so I figured I'd reiterate.

    Sorry doublespey, the magazine Washington and Oregon Fish and Game. I edited my post above for others. I couldn't believe it when I read the article..
