I overheard an interesting debate while fishing at JCP the other day and thought I would post it hear as I did not know the answer either... One guy was saying that someone he knew caught 23" steelhead out of the Alton Baker Canal, and he said that they had to tag it because the Alton baker canal is fed by the Willamette and is considered a river. The other guy was arguing that the Alton Baker Canal is all stocked and he wasn't sure if they had to tag it. Does anyone have a thoughts on this? I only ask because I've personally pull an 18" out of there in 2008 and did not have tags.... Just curious..
