I have this theory, that a better way to limit number of boaters on riv during salmon migration, would be to stop offering permits for August 15- sept 15 in the main lottery, and instead offer a reasonable number of permits later on, same time as cancelations. Seams like a bunch of those permit applications end up being bogus anyway, get canceled. Just pick the number of permits that biologists decide are reasonable for the migration period, and let folks that didn't get a permit in the main lottery have a chance.
At least that's what I would do if I were permit god.

Makes sense. Let the biologists decide the number. Good idea. My vote for permit God goes to you.

This is such BS, those permits were never cancelled, they just weren't confirmed. FS should be releasing those on the 16 th like all other unconfirmed lottery winner's permits.
