Nero Fiddles while Rome Burns
When you think it cannot get any sillier, a guide blog talks about how "the big runs have returned to nearly all the rivers."
Am I confused, where has wild fish recovery occurred? This guide fishes on rivers that not only have missed escapement in the past couple years, but one that is chronically under-escaped. What possible reason could there be to lie about the numbers of fish in the rivers? Is it ego, drumming up business, or just a total lack of awareness of the biology of steelhead and these rivers?
I guess if you're not aware and think everything is a-okay then getting involved and fighting for the fish isn't necessary... and fishing for big numbers is just the right thing to do. Why show restraint when the runs are HUGE!!!!!
