So does every other predatory fish in the river. Squawfish and salmonids coexisted for millions of years without a problem. People used to kill dollies because they thought they ate juvenile salmon. How is killing a squawfish any different?
face it everyone, the majority of fly fishers tend to view any member of the salmonid family on a higher hierarchical level than any other species, so based on that, it seems to be the trend that any "other" species that poses a threat to them is viewed as an "enemy", and dealt with accordingly. just mention fly fishing for carp to any trout fisherman. talk about a fish that requires a flawless presentation and puts up a phenomenal fight. if it swims, throw a fly at it!
