Thanks I cannot wait for the wisdom and order of Euriopean fishery managers to arrive here in the states. I hope it happens in my remaining 20-30 years around here otherwise I will have to wait for fly fishing heaven I suppose.
Gravid fish are legal to take here except on our limited no kill wild salmon and steelhead river section. Probably less than 5% of the fishable waters nation wide are in this category. It may be only 1%-5% of our total rivers that have such regulations.
