There is quite a discussion on this on WFF, it's a nice vid but a major brand whoring out the resource that is in the most peril is ridiculous.
Some numbers to chew on...
2016 wild steelhead escapements
Sol duc 2,165
All these rivers are open till or through April.
For comparison the leading N Puget sound river has 7,918 returning and is closed to winter steelheading, hope this will change soon!
The coastal rivers need to be shut down before it's to late, or the state could open every river to C N R and spread the pressure out. The coast cannot handle the pressure anymore, the Sol Duc has 130% of the fish being caught, the Hoh is around 80%. We are far to efficient at catching, kuddos for the young man to change his tactics, but at the same time is pimping out a a declining stock.
Tight lines! B K Paige
