Id say it would bring less money in...the amount of gear guys coming from all over BC and the US to fish it now is crazy.
I disagree. This one month fishery could become a relatively affordable and quickly famous destination for not only the fortunate locals who choose to fish a fly, but also for the already savvy Japanese, European and American anglers who fish this river for salmon. The potential for a quality, fly only fishery like this, so close to so many people worldwide through both Vancouver and Seattle airports is immense.
The spin offs in watershed improvements alone would be worth it, IMO
