Sturgeon seasons and general complaining
« on: January 30, 2018, 03:23:44 PM »

This has me shaking my head.  I've never seen these areas close this fast for the keeper season!

Zone 6 Sturgeon
 The Sturgeon Management Task Force (SMTF) met on January 24 to discuss and develop
management recommendations for 2018 white sturgeon fisheries in Bonneville, The Dalles,
and John Day pools, including potential modifications to harvest guidelines based on updated
population assessments. The SMTF did not modify 2018 harvest guidelines for Bonneville
(325 each for treaty and recreational) and John Day (210 for treaty and 105 for recreational)
pools but did adopt new harvest guidelines for The Dalles Pool for 2018-2020 (550 total
including 415 treaty commercial and 135 recreational)

So because there are supposed to be more fish, now the tribes get 80% of the catch?
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Just can't bring myself to getting rid of our sturgeon poles.  :'(   Had a custom one built for the wife.
