I think you miss the point of the article, Anthony. Snagging is or was common on the Trinity River at Grey's Falls and Burnt Ranch Falls and basically along most of that stretch of river from Cedar Flat down to where the South Fork dumps in. Salmon get in those pools waiting to jump up the falls and are pretty much sitting ducks for snaggers using lead headed jigs. I've seen the same practice on the Mad River in the winter when they close off the weir going into the hatchery and fish start stacking up there. A fishing license is not a license to rape the resource, I don't care how much they charge for one, and I will gladly rat a snagger out to a warden.
