.....and aggressive regulation is bad why?
Looks like all the boats arrived at the ditch at 2:00 PM because of the Hoot Owl restriction. Hadn't thought about how the Hoot Owl would increase crowding on the river.
Word is the Hoot Owl restrictions were placed on the river more as a defensive measure. They were concerned about the crowding and fishery stress that would occur if it remained the only river not on Hoot Owl.
