I dont believe there is a better one. ODFW claims they do there best to keep the count updated, but seems to me they could do a little better. You might get a better figure off the phone line listed in the Oregonian, but I have never experienced that either.
what you see is what you get... they videotape 24hrs and some lucky person has to recount those fish. since it is automatically behind on the weekends I can only imagine how hard it is during higher counts. (this may or may not be an accurate statemnet but is to the best of my knowledge of how they do it).
state police said it was a lady watching the video tape and she was out for awhile , sick or vacation :whazzup: she falls behind because of the amount of fish coming :shocked: , try watching a 24 hour tape in 8 hours with that many fish
the odfw budget wont alow her any overtime ... :hoboy:
