Easy there bro, Im not here to argue with anyone. This forum is about discussions and opinions. I have fished with chromechaser and he is one of the most ethical fisherman I have fished with. I respect your opinion if you dont want to see the fish bothered where he was fishing. But for you to shout out why and that no one should fish up there. I think could have been worded a little different. As far as me calling odfw... whats the point? Cause the fact of the matter is its open to fish so there for if you have major concerns about the welfare of the fish. Then maybe you should call odfw back and ask them why its open to fish.
As far as 25 min to revive a fish. And the other one Not long at all? dosent excactly mean that coho have weak hearts. IMO some take longer to revive than others. It could be for multiple reasons. Maybe there worried about dying in a few more weeks after spawning. And still ending up as seal food. Or maybe they crapped out a million eggs and have no idea what there going to name all of em. who cares? let odfw control where we can and can't fish. And that way we as fisherman can concentrate on catching fish and enjoying the fact that we can. And like I said your entitled to your opinion. And Im also entitled to say I think its funny.
