Wishin I was on the Sauk
Nice try , but purse seines or beach seines are not presently legal for non tribal fishers on the Columbia river nor are fish wheels or fish traps. Those selective fishing methods where outlawed many years ago on the Columbia river.
And who made those illegal? You guessed it the gill netters, because those other methods where far superior to gill netting. What they spend on lobbyists must be far more than what they make in Washinton. And "LEGAL" is easily changed!
