Good reads

 

I like these two paragraphs the best

 

The choice to emphasize salmon rather than lake trout boiled down to each species’ appeal to anglers, according to Tanner. Coho had more angler appeal and greater potential to stimulate personal spending and the economy.

 

“We said we wanted coho, a fishery that was exciting enough that people would make the investment of time and money to participate,†Tanner said. “They can’t get that with lake trout. You have to have an exciting fishery that fits the food supply, which is why salmon was a perfect fit.â€
