    Don't all of these people run shops/guides, and have a vested interest in the "more fish is better" philosophy?

    And I like the "place for natives" philosophy...considering that's what the NPS was set up for...preservation

    And to quote my #2 son who is a Aquatic Wildlife Biologist ...

    "I'd be more worried about tourists knowing the difference between a cutthroat and rainbow."

    We will be there in September again to test the waters.

    Why is it that only those "opposed" to this regulation are labelled a "special interest group"?

    Maybe I'm not as prone as others to simply throw my dog in the hunt based on a "Scientific Based Management", since I've seen too many debacles with that banner being waved. Far too often those "other groups" (including the biologists) are as much or more prone to be driven by special interests than any outdoorsman group involved.

    John I think it is safe to say we have very different World views... And I will leave it at that.
