Here are the numbers for the Bethel Test Fishery as of July 1.
It’s disheartening to hear how many people have defied the conservation measures implemented to protect the kings. The word is that not only was there the obvious outright civil disobedience to fish when the various sections of river were closed, but now many people are using 8-inch gear when 6-inch and smaller is required.
We will all be paying the price for that selfishness in the future! TAKE A LOOK AT THE ESCAPEMENT NUMBERS FROM THE PAST TWO YEARS – AND THIS YEAR MIGHT EVEN BE WORSE!
