    It could be worse.... 'cause it would suck if sleds were powering up and down those rivers all day!

    I've heard some say that those rivers will forever remain sled-free, since there might be some folks with cutting torches who would take exception to any sled trailers in the take-out parking. I wouldn't see anything! :thumb:

    And I can't even buy me a buddy to hike into some wild and snag-infested, devil's club-lined, 3rd-tier, almost forgotten backwoods creeks looking for cutts and maybe even some steel, with no guarantees except maybe "WTF am I doing way back in here?" I sure hope it stays this way!
    After reading about the hordes assailing the O.P. rivers, I'd almost rather stay in my home waters and have to rub shoulders with the relatively few local bait slingers and poachers I encounter. Somebody please tell me it ain't really as bad as some are claiming. I haven't fished up there recently. :confused:

    A lottery system is coming next. They should also be a little more forward thinking and conservation minded by creating a new bus route to Forks!

    Nah...first change: no fishing from a moving watercraft on certain stretches of the Sol Duc or Hoh.

    It's a CF out there, even during the week. Upper Hoh had people at every pull off on Friday.

    I would say it's a normal, consistent increase from year to year. It's more than last year, which is more than the year before that, and so on.
