helping is what i said, not saving. that's observable if you believe that hotspotting reports are detrimental.there is over 25 pages of google search results for little spokane river fly fishing, all archived from this forum. i dont think it really matters. there are no secrets. the little spokane is an anything goes free for all. redbands are killed daily. i have no hope for the system, its already dead in my eyes. i was never expecting the result of saving the river by making jokes about hotspotting or talking shit.
im glad you think your saving the rivers with your 1-1 conversations. i do plenty of polite PM's to people that you have never seen when it comes to rivers that are actually under the radar and get posted about. ive been doing it for years, this is not some new phenomenon.
do you live near by? have you ever fished or floated it? do you have any first hand experience in the reality on the ground?
unwanted attention.... lol..... it gets PLENTY of that from the locals.
last time i was there i found a spot that had about 15 stakes in the ground each tied off to multiple barbed bait rigs left in the water overnight (or longer).
the logic eludes you dustin, but i'm glad you're here and i'm glad you love your home waters so passionately.
