    Again, where do you get this info from.......Please tell me! There is nowhere in the regs book where it says this....what is a warden going to cite you for if there is no regulation in the book.

    As far as the Klamath goes it's in the supplemental regulations and new for this year.

    If its strictly a fishery impact type thing, then wouldn't CnR ing say 10 fish in a day and never retaining one cause just as much harm???? CnR isn't illegal and you don't have to quit fishing after you CnR 1 fish.

    The only river system with a cease fishing order is the Klamath. Check out the supplemental regulations....only on the Klamath does it say you have to stop fishing once a legal fish is retained.

    Good to CNR on all other rives if you already have your daily limit.

    I want to agree with you......please show me in the books where it says this other than on the Klamath.

Both are citations along with continuing to fish while limit is filled.

    Only exception that I can think of: bass tournaments. They usually have a special permit that allows for culling and continued fishing when they have 5 in possession.

    If you C&R only, releasing every single fish is not considered take. You have not kept a fish. Take=kept

    Sorry but this is not correct........Nowhere in the regs does it say such a thing.....except for the special regs on the Klamath. So if it says that for the Klamath, but not for any other river, why would you assume that is true on all the other rivers.

    And as far as dying in the net, that's also why I said no netting....even a live fish in the net is considered possession.

    Again show me where it says you can not "pursue" one you have your daily bag limit. If it is not written in the regs, you can't be cited for a violation.

    Good to continue fishing as long as you do not take the fish out of water or net him....netting or removing from the water even for a second is considered possession once you have one on the stringer. Don't even take him out to take a photo.
    Just release him in the water when the fight is over!

    Re: Possession?

    Think about it this way.....if you don't even want to keep a fish at all........according to the one and done(if it were true), you would have to stop fishing after you CnR one fish. If that's the case, even when the limit was two, how were folks having 5-10 fish days in the basin? Would that make them 5 over their limit even if they didn't keep one?
    And how would a warden know if you have already CnR'd one, or two, or six.......see what im getting at?
