Steelhead realease rules

From everyone's favorite Steelhead and salmon class instructor/Uber guide:

Two many non-thinkers on the court: I happened to ask the opinion of a longtime angler what he thought of the "don't lift the released steelhead from the water," law.

He offered a simple solution that would have made a lot more sense, that most anglers do, anyway. The rule should have read." Any potentially released steelhead must remain out over the water until released." This, of course would prevent steelhead from flopping in the bottom of the boat or being dragged up on shore. Perfect. Anyone who actually fishes, knows that even a few inches of water will cushion a fall, should the fish slip out of hand. Oh well. I wish that was our biggest fisheries problem.

Actually, my favorite Uber Guide is O.C.
There is no substitute for time on the water.
