How about that. A little common sense has prevailed for once.

I can't believe the changes were even proposed. Glad they were shot down

It wasn't because of a sudden onset of common sense. It was because of this:

"As of March 31, the agency had received 343 comments, with all but five opposed to the proposal."

The people who sent in comments opposing this proposal made this happen.

Well, sometimes commissioners follow the beat of a different drum despite public comments. Either way, I'm glad to see it unchanged.

I'm barely even a fly fisherman at this point, haven't done it in years, but I wrote to support them in this case. There are plenty of gen reg streams for people to fish with plenty of trout. Let the fly guys have there place.

DHALO = delayed harvest artificial lures only. Spoons, spinners, cranks, jigs, and flies fished with spin gear are all legal..

There are, AFAIK, no delayed harvest areas that are FFO. If a water is FFO, it is listed as Fly Fishing Only, NOT delayed harvest. This regulation would have only affected the delayed harvest areas, the ones that can be fished with any artificial lure.

I fish the Tulpehocken DHALO area. Those trout are fine all summer long. That proposal would have made no sense at all for that stream.

Correct, but some of them are FFO.
There were delayed harvest flyfishing areas for many years, but not anymore.

That category was eliminated.
