Rob, that's exactly why OUR (PNW) steelhead management is the antithesis of economics!!! I agree, a steelhead that never sees a fly is just as valuable as the one that takes a fly but the one that takes a fly adds alot of value ($$$), dollars to the equation. As Inland demonstrated! Make the fish more valuable and you'll get more of them, simple economics. A fish with no economic value has no voice because it has no value...a closed river means no added value and no attraction for a fisherman who wants to go fishing, regardless of gear. The fish that never sees a fly or lure cannot contribute to the local interest in keeping it going. Humans manage fisheries around the world, only the highly valued fisheries survive. The Canadians have learned this and therefore have fish to fish for. Decentralized rule making is the key. Closing steelhead fisheries de-values steelhead.
