When In Maine, Leave Those Wild Atlantic Salmon Alone

Today in the Boston Globe: "The federal government dramatically extended protection yesterday for the imperiled wild Atlantic salmon in Maine, declaring that the few remaining sportfish in the Penobscot, Kennebec, and Androscoggin rivers and their tributaries are endangered."

This means that anglers cannot pursue this species. Good for the fish. Not so good for fly fishing and the economy of Maine. One has to wonder about the increased level of bureaucracy. It's never win-win with the government.
