I am not sure about their laws on keeping native fish. I am going to have to
check that out as well. I know the salmon are VERY protected. If you fish
for them you have to have a tag for them just like you do if you are deer
hunting. But it would not surprise me if they were strict on them. They tend
to be strict on anything here dealing with nature. Last year they cut the
farmer's water and said there would be record lows in the salmon population
due to our drought. But just when you think you got nature figured out you
get a curve ball. They had record high numbers last year during the salmon
