When I was fishing reds a few miles above the bridge in Soldotna every time a boat came past the river ran brown next to the bank. The water around my legs turned brown. this happened many times during the day. Erosion that I can tell a difference from year to year. We also have pike in many watersheds. Anyone who knows pike knows what kind of damage they can do. Then we have the culverts blocking many of the streams for salmon to spawn in. If they cant get to the spawning grounds you can close all fishing forever and it wont make any difference. Habitat is the bedrock of a salmon fishery. without it there is no salmon fishery. There is nothing to fight over. I would really like to see more focus on habitat than fighting between comfish and sportfish. Together they could make a huge impact. Who do we blame for the loss of habitat?? I guess that would be all of us.
