  1. Also after you retain your 2 adults you MAY NOT continue to fish.. This means you have to catch 4 jacks before your 2 adults or between them.

    1. there are only coho in the river right now....you can keep two fish over 20 inches
      if you catch a fish between 12-20 inches, it's considered a jack, and you can keep fishing until you reach your daily limit of two adult fish
