Hundreds of commercial fishermen are catching red salmon by the thousands. Thousands of dipnetters are catching red salmon by the hundreds. While miles upstream one young man fishing alone accidentally hooked (and kept) one red salmon on the outside of the mouth, and our Fish and Game official deemed it necessary to issue to him a $130 citation for keeping one illegally caught fish. His only fish of the day, which the officer took from him.
Nice system, and great work, officer.
