Elmo , the Rangers Ive spoken to at the Sth side tell me that since the mouth moves and cant be easily defined they all give plenty of leeway ….

To the point they say “if your at the front of the bunch , where the surf meets the river – even if in the river , you can spin for Kahawai as long as you as obviously doing so , and release any salmon hooked by accident “

Still pay to approach whoever is at the river before jumping into it ….they are quite reasonable ….. different if a tribe of spear chuckers or a busload of zipperheads go jumping into the river
