    I've heard different things on what the salmon limits mean and am wondering if anyone can clarify. Does 2 salmon combined plus 2 additional pinks mean that you can only keep 2 pinks or that can keep 4 pinks?

    Retaining any two salmon as allowed by regulation, then keeping 2 additional pinks... that would allow you to keep 4 pinks.

    Keep in mind that some areas only low for one king. So you could have a potentially mixed bag with one king, one coho and two pinks.

    I had a chat with a WFDF Officer a couple of years ago after he busted some guy for too many undersized crabs, no license, too many fish, etc. I inquired about it and he was very blunt. "The regulations are very clear. Read them." I was taken aback for a minute and then I figured out that he was really pissed at the Asian fellow whom he had just written a big fat ticket to and confiscated all of the dead animals. The regs say "Daily limit 2 (combined) plus 2 additional Pink." That means any two legally caught salmon and two more pinks. You can very easily have a mixed bag if it is legal to retain the first two. That is a retention limit for a day.

    No 6 fish limit in the salt. Keeping 6 slime rocket out of the rivers would be like signing your own death certificate.

    As a retired teacher, my response is, "Do the math. 2+2=4....":)

    There is a 6 salmon limit on many rivers. I've always thought this reg. to be odd...

    "Daily limit 6. Up to 2 adults may be retained plus 2
    additional PINK."

    Does that mean the other 2 must be jacks?
