I've always wondered about the projections that fish and game put out each year. They always seem to be off by a fairly large magnitude. This year is no different and the large king run they expected isn't there, so they are going to cut the king limit for the personal use dipnetters from 1 to 0.
If you want a king, you better go this weekend. This goes into effect on Monday.
Honostly I'd rather see them meet their escapement goals than take home a king, so I'm not too upset about it. I wonder how this will be handled in the future if we are correctly assigned as subsistance users? Will they limit the commercial fishing more, or would it be too late since they get a head start on the fish before they come in the river?
