Salmo, I agree with you that the tribes netting some wild steelhead is not the proximate cause of the decline of wild steelhead numbers. I have no animosity toward the tribes for doing what they are legally allowed to do. I too would like to see the tribes stop netting in March/April for exactly the reason you stated. I was simply answering a question on whether tribes were netting during wild winter steelhead time. o mykiss, inland, jbuehler, I agree, greed breeds dishonesty and is a factor in the decline of the fish.
