Posting of GPS coordinates and exact fishing locations is prohibited. This includes, and is not limited to, sharing details about areas that are sensitive to abuse. ie. naming rivers during salmon and steelhead runs, fish spawning areas, small back lakes, or any other content which is deemed 'too specifc' and may be harmful to the resource, fishery or environment.
