Wha?! Memo states there is a possibility for chinook encounters higher than normal so just close it down just in case.
 :dunno:
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

Totally sucks, but I'm OK with their reasoning.  Sounds like there have been a ton of shakers getting beat up out there.  If they need to limit encounters, then it certainly makes sense to only have people fishing when there is a better shaker:keeper ratio.

Yes but by the same reasoning it would not reopen.

Good grief.  We are to the point where something endangered will be in there 12 months out of the year and we'll be telling our grandkids about the time we used to be able to fish.

Keep buying a license to not fish.  I'm gonna just use license money to buy fish from Skillet instead.

WA has went completely to hell... but don't worry there will be cheap tribal net fish for all soon.
