You hit the nail on the head Bruce.That's exactly what DFO does.Alot of the problem is that the commercial fleet is composed of boats from all over the province and not just local.The reason for this is that the commercial openings for all our major river systems happen at different times,instead of having one opening, province wide.This enables fleets from the fraser and south coast to head up to the Skeena,fish the opening there,then head down to the Fraser and fish there,then to the Nass,and so on,and so on.The fleets from the Skeena/Nass do the same and head south for the openings.Alot of the northern locals obviously don't like the way the commercial fishing is being done as it greatly impacts the sportfishing in the area.This in turn has a very negative impact on the tourism industry and the overall economy of these towns.It is not the commercial fishermen's fault.They are simply doing what DFO allows them to do and are trying to make the best living they can.I think DFO should try to work out a better way of doing things though instead of going back and forth the way they do.One year there will be a heavy commercial harvest and the sportfishers will be left with the scraps,while the next there will be no commercial opening.The sportfishing is great but the commercial fishers get outraged.Thus the next year DFO has to give more to the commercial fleet.It never ends and it never seems to get any better.

Now get ready for larger crowds on the system. D.F.O Canada opened the Bulkey system up for the harvesting of coho starting today and the Kispiox will also open. The Bulkey will be open from Aug.16 until September 30 so I am sure the old locals will dust off the casting gear and start fishing again. The river is going to be open fromHazelton to Lamprey creek and from sept.1 all the way to Gosnell creek. This should make for some fun with a new wave of old time fishermen showing up again after all these years of no kill on salmon.
