24x7 fishing

I read an interesting statement in the PNW section concerning 24x7 fishing on the PM.

Since it was brought up I figured you guys can offer some valuable insights.

My particular concern is for the PM, but you can apply this to other rivers as well.

The PM has a no kill flys only section, which happens to be where the best spawning gravel is. She also is an expendable resource, time will prove that.

Should 24x7 fishing be allowed there during the height of the runs? (I understand the hex hatch, night fishing for big browns which adds another wrinkle.)

If we allow 24x7 fishing in prime spawning areas when do these babies have time to do their thing?
Also how does this no kill 24x7 impact lower sections of the river?

I look forward to your responses.
