OPEN LETTER: Current restriction of mature wild stock Chinook ruins sports fishing and recreational fishing — 2 Comments

  1. I would have liked to see Mr. Hicks add that the fishing that is allowed in the spawning beds in the Sooke River is an incredible hazard to the reproductive cycle of our local salmon. Even though it is catch and release most of the caught fish die before they can complete their egg laying. while the salmon are running literally dozens of fishermen are stomping through the laid eggs either scattering or crushing them. For fishermen that care about having healthy fish stocks for future years, its pretty short sighted to allow this.
