Nope, they aren't going to chance Chinook encounters from people fishing Silvers and Pinks. Saw that coming when the regs said August would be evaluated based on remaining Chinook quota, quota’s gone so opener in August is gone also.
Not sure what the big deal is. Jpod hasn’t been spotted in A7 since April. The whale people claim it’s because there’s no chinook for them to eat. So how would us as rod and reel fisherman have an encounter?
