Thanks for the clarification, it seems that (a) there is measurable evidence that a fishing restriction would benefit the Thompson coho and (b) there is actually a plan that encompasses international borders for the sake of the fish. I find these extremely reassuring and worth implementing even by a group of primarily C&R flyfishers like ourselves, perhaps keeping just enough for the grill for a ceremonial clave dinner on Sat PM before heading to sweetwater for Sunday.
But I guess our ability to access that fishery would mean hordes of flashers and cut pluggers with nylon nets and priests bringing home the motherlode in those big bloody plastic body bags, all or none.
What ever happened to the extended C&R fishery, or was that just in area 5?
In any case, for this clave in August... should we move it to Sekiu?
