What you hear is true. Probably not as much press down south since there isn't much salmon fishing, but up here (bay area) its been big news even since last year whent they threatened to close it down. Well, after several months of debate it was finally decided to close it all down this year. I think the river guys are going to get one month of fishing, but thats it. Unfortunately, I don't think the closure will be enough. Hopefully, they'll work on the other factos that have an influence on their numbers. I guess only time will tell.
