What has happen with the new rules that I saw that might limit numbers of out of state fishers. Did that affect you or did it fail to get passed.

Thanks Frank. The rules..... That has stirred quite a bit of commotion here (and elsewhere). For now there are still round table meetings with the interest groups. I do expect that we will see some changes in the future though. To be honest something needs to be done to preserve the high quality fishing experience. I'm sure it won't be easy to satisfy all involved but in the end it is the fishery that is important. In the near future I don't thing much will change for visiting anglers, the way it looks now.
