Tribal Salmon netting ( 17:27:53 SunOct 30 2011 )

I'd rather be chatting it up about dredging but since I could not dredge this year this kinda gets me a little ticked off. How long is the "tribal netting season"?

Coppied from

Tribal Netting
The tribal commercial season opens mid August and with reports that they are only going to net five days per week we should see better sport action up-stream. This is good news for both sport anglers and salmon as it will allow more fish to make it up the river. That said, if there is uncontrolled subsistence netting upstream, seven days per week, stopping the commercial netting below does little to aid the fishery. (the commercial zone is very controlled and regulated with nets allowed just between roughly 100 yards inside the mouth to just upstream of the Chinook campground with all fish counted and many rules and oversight) The only way to allow actually escapement is to have zero netting above a certain point say the 101 bridge or the Glen. With dozens, sometimes scores of subsistence nets being anchored and power drifted at night in the holding holes, closing the lower river does little to provide escapement.
This writer has been a huge critic of gillnetting and my opinions are based on what I have seen first hand for 40 plus years. That said, the Yurok's have made great improvements in their commercial regulations, quality of the catch, hours and days fished and enforcing those rules the past few years. But if they continue to allow uncontrolled subsistence netting upstream, regulations on the lower river do little to aid the fishery above.
My hat goes off to those managing the tribal fall run commercial fishery but now we need actual management and enforcement of the subsistence netting (and black market fishery) above to allow the recovery of ESL salmon species.

And the tribe sells fish out of pickups along the highway by happy camp, witch is aginst the law.

I'd sure like to eliminate tribal perks and the unnecessary waste of taxpayers dollars.
