Fish The Klamath???
I don't get it. As mentioned earlier on in all the papers, the salmon fisheries in the Klamath have supposedly been devastated by the dams up there. Yet, as has also been mentioned, while salmon fishing has been pretty much closed down throughout the state, the Klamath is the one place left open. The Triplicate reports that salmon runs on the Klamath will be strong this year and and officials are getting word out to local businesses to prepare for an influx of salmon fishermen.
What's up with that? I'm concerned about fisheries as much, or more, than the next guy, but I can't help but wonder. Are these doomsday projections we're hearing about the salmon fisheries just more of the same kind of hysteria we see with things like global warming? I can't help but think that a wise man I knew years ago was right and there are good and bad years for salmon just like there always have been and just because we have a low salmon run one year doesn't mean it's always something that's our fault?
