Stance on river fishing, barbed hooks, stocking and so on?
New Business:Club Stance discussion
Steve K. :Should push rivers and tribs closed during spawning, open Memorial Day, barbless, no bait. Says Fredericks claims no difference in barbed mortality.
Our outlook should be that F&G should replace fish lost to river fishing mortality. Two fish lost. 8,000 eggs, for example.We need a census on how many are fishing the rivers,
We want census on how many are fishing spawners? Legally? How much morality?
If F&G can’t supply Hatchery space for Gerards, CLOSE the natural Hatcheries(rivers).
May have talked Steve K. into working on local advertising for Derbies.(ad prices, research)
