Maine Salmon C&R Debate

The Maine State Senate passed a bill to open the Penobscot, St. Croix and Saco rivers for C&R fishing of sea run salmon. admist concerns that the runs are still much too weak to be opened for sport fishing of any kind. Sen. M. Kilkelly, D-Wiscasset expressed concerns over the fragile remnant runs, among others. According to the Bangor news, the bill (LD 2579) will now proceed to the house.

My opinion on this matter, despite being a very enthusiastic salmon angler, leans toward the environmentalists. Maine has historically shown little concern for the salmon that once were part of it's legacy, now this bill re-inforces a feeling of exploitation of a resource that was ill-cared for over the last two centuries.

Let the government show responsibility for the welfare of a run before promoting access to it's remnants for sport! Any of you guys in Maine want to chime in on this topic?
