    yes the water is warm but the water is not low it will get alot lower then this yet this year and if the DFO decide to close the river there will not be a salmon river in few years its a free pass to the poachers at least now theres a few wardens and outfiters that as people in are on the river if the river is closed there will be no one, easy access to go net a river as for people worrying about the number of fish they will increase as soon as we get a big raise of water which will come. Many people that recently got into fishing has not seen these conditions cause the last few years has been high water but the people that has been the river for a lifetime rember 10, 15 years ago we always had low water just it stayed cool things like this all goes in cycles and we need to let the cycles work it self out
