Time for another bar chart survey.

Would you be willing to pay a tailwater tax/license each year in addition to your fishing license for the SOLE purpose of hiring additional officers or paying for overtime to patrol and enforce tailwater regulations? YES/NO

I mean seriously. Roughly, 11 cents a day is what we pay to trout fish in this state? $10 additional won't kill anybody. How much do you guys pay to play ONE round of golf a year?
I am a great admirer of spectator sports, especially on television; it keeps the riffraff off the trout streams.
