Ok theres and EO allowing 3 silvers for Kink are streams. Jim Creek and Little sue are exempt from the EO and the existing 3 per day of which 2 can be silvers still stands..
Where does Jim Creek end and the Knik River start????
I was out there this morning fishing about 1/2 mile down from the mouth of Jim Creek. (downstream of the hog line) with the high water I was definately fishing in the "silt" Am I fishing Knik? or am I fishing Jim Creek?
I only took 2 out this morning on the "spirit of the law" idea that the fish I was chatching were likely destined for Jim. but still thats a weak arguement
for example the limit at the Eklutna tailrace 3 silvers and it's generally accepted that many of the fish caught there are going to Jim, Goat creek, Bandenburg creek or elsewhere upstream where the limits are different.
last word of course would be F&G officers but is there a case for those fishing way down the ways from the mouth of Jim Creek are actaully fishing the Knik and therefore the limit is 3????
thoughts? opinions? more for curiosity than anything... I likely will still abide by the "2 silvers" rule until its clarified.
