Species covered in proposed rule • Not species specific
Rule to Change: Minter Creek is closed during Chinook and Coho Season.
New Rule Proposal: I think that the state should sell raffle tickets to allow 20 or 30 people the ability to fish Minter Creek for Chinook and Coho Salmon. Whoever wins the raffle should be allowed to keep 1 of either species per day.
Why the change is needed: I feel this would give the state extra money to spend on other fishing resources. Since Minter creek has such a large run of Chinook and Coho salmon.
Names of individuals or groups with whom you have discussed this change: I have talked this over with several people that I fish regularly and think it is a good idea.
Describe their support and/or concerns:
They think it is a good idea. My only concern is that it would be hard to regulate who has a pass and who does not. I do not want to see this fishery turn into another soos creek.

Salmon, goes through the North of Falcon process This proposal deals with salmon. Salmon seasons are set through the Pacific Fisheries Management Council/North of Falcon process.
