We've all read about or experienced the huge increase in boat traffic on the Klickitat and WSC has proposed a state-wide rule banning all fishing from a floating device on mnay steelhead rivers. I hear that WDFW is considering banning fishing from a floating device on the Methow this steelhead season. (they can't ban boats from floating) Some argue that it will offer the fish some additional 'sanctuary' water and reduce wade angler/boat conflict but I also hear the 'what about the disabled, old, young, etc.' I wade fish so it won't impact me (except to not have boats fish through my water) but I do have some older friends who will have to get in and out of a boat to fish making the trip a bit more physically taxing. What are your thoughts? Any ideas for those less physically able? The WSC proposal doesn't address this issue.
