Although I agree that ODFW did good making non-finclipped trout on coastal streams C&R only, I was dismayed over their decision to allow a harvest of two per day from the Salmon River south this year. I was also less than happy that the harvest size was set at six inches and better. This small of size could allow the inadvertent harvest of some of the larger Steelhead and Chinook smolts.


I think that using barbless hooks for any C&R fishing is a great idea. Too bad ODFW bumper their collective heads and concluded that barbless hooks did not improve the hook mortality rate for released fish. Thatís one of the reasons why barbless hook restrictions were relaxed in inland Oregon waters.
