RE:Striper Management in Oregon,
As much as I love the striped bass in it's naturally occurring waters, I'd hate to see those emerald Oregon coastal rivers in a blitz with silver smolt flying out of the water for their lives.
Striped bass are readily caught when feeding in river outflows and may provide a sensible catch and keep fishery for the region to help control their populations.
I think our Northeast contingent could provide a huge resource for educating people in the ways of the linesider to promote an aggressive harvest fishery to reduce their impact on smolt.
Are these brood from the single San Francisco planting?
