It's unreal to me, growing up in this area, that this wasn't on the radar 15 years ago.

I'd like to say, "better late than never", but I cant. I hope they aren't patting themselves on the back for this.

I'd like to see a bounty on Spiny Rays in some areas.

I'm surprised that they still allowed harvest of wild trout on the very upper stretch near Canada. That's where most of the restrictions during spawning season are established for wild trout, yet they now require c&r everywhere BUT there?

Is this where the Jurassic specimens reside? Agree, good news but surprising that rule hasn't been in place for years.
It might be preemptive due to all the pike moving downstream. I know the bios are worried about what will happen to the native redband numbers once the pike hit the San Poil.

Trip,
There was talk about fish passage at Grand Coulee.
Any word on where that stands at this time?

I found it interesting that harvest of those beautiful redbands is allowed in the upper reaches where the lake effect from Grand Coulee ceases. I also wonder about the effects of all the plunkers using bait and the release of adipose present trout? Regardless of my concerns, it's a step in the right direction!

They're still talking about it, but they need one at Chief Joe first.
