Salmon season can be ugly....

Years ago I was fishing the PM and it was very ugly ... guys 10 yards a part sagging fish ... crowding to in to your hole ... groups of guys fishing in shifts in the same hole so no one else could get in for the whole weekend ... yahoos everywhere.

Then they made the "flys only" section "catch and release" ... bless them 1000 times ... 99% of the yahoos went away ... down stream I think ... into the lake I hope. Sportsman ... curtious sportsman ... now fish there. It still gets crowded, but it is a different crowd ... with a different attitude about fishing.

Love 'em and Leave 'em ... it makes a difference in the fishing, the river and the fisherman.
