Let me understand what just happened! At the end of NOF the WDFW imposed a season with 14 net days in 2A/2D and perhaps 5 days in 2C that were not shown at the meeting. Now it is 7 tangle net days in 2A/2D only.

At first I thought the gill netters realized the huge economic value of recreational fishing and gave up 12 days for the good of the community. Then Rivrguy said they did not know about the change until last night.

So did WDFW realize that the final NOF season was a mistake? Not a chance. Something good happened and I would guess we owe the rec advisors or a few in the rec community big time. This year has the potential to be the best recreational river fishery in years. A big thank you to those involved on our behalf.
