Fishing Law to Be Tested

Joel La Follette - Thursday, August 24, 2017

Turn of the century anglers and game officials still were uncertain about the classification of many of our native salmonids which led to game-law enforcement problems. The definition of Trout and Steelhead had not yet been cast in stone so one man found a unique way to force the issue as reported by the Morning Oregonian of January 28th, 1920. While Steelhead in the Rogue River were much more plentiful at the time, we're still taking about Winter Steelhead here. I hope the officer and the lawyer brought a lunch and plenty of hot coffee

Man Will Try to Catch Steelhead in Presence of Officials.

MEDFORD. Or., Jan. 27. (Special.) - To make a test as to whether a steelhead is a trout or a salmon, and whether the law against catching trout at this season of the year applies to a steelhead, a local fisherman has agreed to catch a steelhead if he can in full view of local fish wardens and Attorney E. D. Briggs of Ashland has agreed to defend him. In the opinion of the fish and game warden the season on steelhead is closed, but there is considerable doubt among the sportsmen which result of this case is expected to remove.
