I'm not sure if I agree with the free fishing weekend. What happens if someone gets caught poaching on a free weekend, how are they fined? obviously it really doesnt do much by suspending there ability to buy a licence for a pereiod of time. Or, what about those who may be under a suspension. Are they allowed to fish on these weekends?

 

Just curious.

I'm wondering more about the guide influx from B.C. myself that weekend. :D

The regulations are the same on the free licence weekend - only the licence requirement is revoked.

 

poachin is poachin regardless of the licence.

I understand that, but how does that defer anyone who only fishes once a year, say that weekend?

 

I think they should offer a licence for that weekend at no cost. But make the person who wishes to fish go get it therefor they get a copy of the regs as well. That way they can also track the person just as a regular licence purchaser.

 

just a thought. :huh:

Interesting - but the effort and expense are probably not worth the effort.

 

I suppose it doesn't really matter. Given the number of F&W officers available on the water - chances are - every weekend is a free weekend...

 

I do like the idea though - perhaps that should be recommended to the gov. Even if quashed - at least they'll have had an option...
