        That's only for cohos (silvers) and only applicable to a pretty short stretch of river. By time silvers start rolling up the river, the combat crowds are long gone.

          you can't release pike in the susitna river drainage now? What the hell?

          Seriously this is not the answer to the pike problem... To control them we need BIG pike not a bunch of little teeny ones. And thats the added bonus of a pretty cool fishery.
          I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

            :ditto: ...once again I really question the wisdom of ADF&G's pike management.

              ADF&G did not propose the rule I believe, its the BOF enacting a dumb proposal. Really not much ADF&G can do (about the reg or the pike) I for one would like to see trophy pike in redshirt lake, and its gonna take a while for that to happen. Killing every pike big enough to bite in there might not help, and certainly won't help the trout/salmon population

                  so people can use it to fish for silvers.

                      Ok explain this one to me about the pike. Why is the new reg bad?

                        I like the part about not fishing from a boat right in front of the mouth of Willow Creek. Last season several boats I can only assume were guided fishing trips would come right in front of us, cast toward us, and tangle up lines with those fishing from the bank. When they weren't doing that, they were going by at warp 10 and sending tsunami style waves ashore to interupt everyone's fishing rythum.
                        I have nothing against fishing guides. But I do have a problem with them using their equipment to impede other fishermen and women from catching fish to give thier clients more to fish for. That, folks, is unethical.

                          Good question. A dead pike can't eat salmon fry, so what's the problem? When a mosquito lands on me, I don't evaluate wheter it's male or female, I indiscriminately kill it (only female mosquitos can bite).

                            Some people I have said it wasn't a good idea, I don't understand why it isn't. If some one can explain, it would be nice. Because to me small, medium,or large they cause problems for salmon. just look what happened to Alexander Creek.

                              I don't think it is a bad idea either. But, I think what people are referring to is the fact that large pike tend to eat smaller pike. So, if you remove a large pike, you are just going to help the population of hammer handles (small pike). If you let a big pike go, he can get bigger and eat more pike. I think this is the general idea what people are referring to. It might have been a good idea to change the restriction to allow pike over 30" to be released.
