The Muckleshoot had some guys out shocking at lake Sammamish this morning. Something needs to be done or that lake is in trouble with regards to bass fishing. Sad situation.
More live well biology can fix it
I can only assume that the tribe is doing this and receiving some decent financial funds. I guess I'm not buying into the whole, it's for the trout/salmon excuse that tends to be lobbed around in other fisheries.
Sammamish is not a large body of water. If they have even moderate success netting it will impact the fishery. The last couple years has already seen a steady decline in tournament weights out there. There are Chinook Salmon and Coho salmon that run thru there, but I agree there is no doubt that they are finding some way to make money off the fish they are netting.
I was out again today. They are shocking in the shallows, not netting. They have a stack of plastic bins on the dock which are clearly for their harvest.
