“We know that deteriorating water quality is a significant factor contributing to the decline of the smallmouth bass population in portions of these rivers and we continue to work with other state agencies and conservation groups on the issue,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “But at the same time, we can protect the existing bass population by reducing angling pressure on them.”

If water quality was not an issue, there would be no fishing restriction.  It is that simple.  Fishermen must assume an advocacy role in matters related to conservation and the environment.
