Sad as it may be..........EVERYBODY wants more!!
In my opinion, if sports want to put a dent on commercial fishing they must get together and pool their resources and energy, without this unified effort, its just peeing in the wind.
Unfortunately relying on ODFW is somewhat useless, not because they dont care but because they are not allowed to only represent the interests of one side, they must be diplomatic. Playing favorites would only bring lawsuits.

How lucrative can the value of these mid fall fish be for the Gillys. I would think that a certain percentage of the fish that they catch have only fair flesh quality and that some go to waste. Are they really making money? Is it a tax right off? What is the real deal here?

I guess I better put on my flame-proof suit but gillnetting is a useful fishery management tool. When used correctly (i.e. to harvest salmon surplus to the higher value sport caught fishery), it can ensure beneficial use of fish which would otherwise go to waste.
The trick is to use this tool correctly. The CEDC Fisheries program at Youngs Bay (and other locations) is an example of the correct use of this tool. Take a look at the number of sport caught fish which we would not have without this program.
Like it or not (and I personally don't like it) the only way other than commercial fishing to effectively harvest a significant number of these surplus fish is to allow snagging in the hatchery creeks.
