As usual you tell bits and pieces of reality (what is in your kool-aid).
I was given 4 rods per day in June from the Government. I did not need any on June 7 but they were imposed regardless and so I took one of my guides not Austin (my head guide, written up in a wonderful piece in Forbes). I think we fished 3 hours in total. The rods were there and were used.
For the season I have fished 1 other time during the time of imposed rods and that was on open water with Dave Bishop and Wilson. Chris was the lucky one that day. The rods that are imposed are being used by my clients on daily basis.
Too bad you left early; the falls fished great on Saturday and my clients appreciate you passing them up.
Can't wait to see you on the rivers next June.
