Bob Hooton addresses the elephant in the room when it comes to Skeena steelhead.
If the angling community wants to continue to enjoy what the Skeena has left to offer it might want to think about softening its collective footprint. Steelhead supply and angling demand have been going in opposite directions for a number of years. That does not a recipe for quality fishing make. If that is no longer important no one needs to do anything different than they have since the quality waters angling regulations came into effect in 1990. Just stand by and watch the word quality be continuously re-defined. If it is important the only option is to develop a system of controlling the number of anglers per unit time and area.
