Seventeen issues were identified at the Commission's May meeting in Grand Junction. The recommendations to be presented to the Commis- sion are: l--Redefine the existing regulation on "foul-hooking" offish to make the regulation easier to enforce. 2--Maintain the current regulation which allows fishermen to buy a "stamp" allowing the use of an addi- tional rod. 3--Continue to allow kokanee snagging on selected waters while ex- tending the regulation to allow snagging of kokanee in Eleven Mile Reservoir. 4--Maintain the existing possession limit allowing anglers to possess one-day's legal catch. 5--Maintain the eight-trout daily bag limit on most waters. 6--Increase the limit for certain warm-water species including walleye, bass. northern pike and Sacramento perch. 7--Maintain the current catch-and-release regula- tions on most waters where the regulations now exist. but allow for harvesting trout on portions of the middle and south Fork of the South Platte while extending catch and release regulations to the Taylor River. 8--Allow the taking of one trout 24 inches or larger in length from the lower portion of a 3-mile stretch of the South Platte between Spin- ney and Eleven Mile Reser- voirs. 9--Allow Jug fishing, where hook and line are attached to floats and retrieved later, on selected waters. 10--Make no changes in the current limits for trout fishing in high country lakes. 11 --Make no change in the bonus brook trout stamp which allows an angler to take 10 brook trout eight in- ches or les in length. 12--Remove the whitefish bag limit on the White River to make the regulation the same as in other waters in the state where there is no limit. 13--Increase rather than reduce the bag limit for selected warm-water fish. 14--Change the regula- tions for lake trout to allow either an eight-fish limit or else allow 1 fish that is smaller than 22 inches or larger than 34 inches. 15--Make no change in the 15-1nch size limitation on bass on selected waters, and increase the waters where the 15-inch bag limit exists. 16--Not create a regulation outlawing a practice known as the "San Juan shuffle" where fishermen intentionally dis- lodge fish eggs and insects from a steam bottom to at- tract fish. 17--Add new waters where catch-and-release waters apply while ending the restriction on some addition- al waters. The new effect would be to add an addition- al 10 miles of streams to the catch-and-release category. Anyone interested in learn- ing more about the regula- tions should attend the open house scheduled for June 29. "Auction Barn" Reopens After a hiatus of several mouths, Showtime Auctions is once again ready to sell, sell, selll Owned and operated by Dale and Diana Williams, Showtime Auctions will auc- tion items on consignment as well as through general auc- tion sale. Dale says an auc- tion "is the form of sale that allows the seller to get top local market value for his in: vested item by establishing a base price for the item and allow the buyers to negotiate upl" Not only are auctions a good way to fill the billfold and empty the attic, they also seem to serve as a form of "old town meetinE' where everyone gathers together to compare notes on sales, weather, crops, health - everything under the sun. Showtlme reopened its doors at the old theater at 366 Main in Nucla last Saturday and Dale says they plan to try for a regular/ monthly auction the third Saturday of every month. If you have something you want to get dispose of, but can't bring yourself to toss it away, give Dale and Diana a call at 864-2292 and see if they can't sell it for you at the next auction.
