Reject proposal#40 this is a hatchery trout fishery we need to remove as many as we can.This is a long way to travel for two fish.
JOHNSON, KENNETH B December 10, 2012
I would like to support this change in regulations.
HOFFMAN, SUSAN December 12, 2012
I agree with this proposal but would like to see these rivers turn in to catch and release only to build up the population now that they are no longer going to be stocked
