I just checked the regs as I was tying up some October caddis for SRC fishing my favorite "S" river and I see that it closes down August 31 and doesn't reopen until November 1. The flows will likely be too high to reach the best spots by then. I presume this change is meant to protect struggling salmon?
I haven't been this depressed in years. As a consolation, I guess these will work on the Yakima in late September?
