Surely need to avoid any barrier to getting youngsters on the stream, but I would still charge some very small fee for a youth license if only to be able to track the participation of youngsters. Those statistics would be important for knowing if things are improving or not and for funding. I'm not sure how this would work for license dealers. Byron has already pointed out the costs to such dealers. The only consideration I have for letting kids use any sort of bait, is the trash that seems to accompany that practice. I would hate to see those blue bait tubs all over the place. A couple of years ago I ran into a kid whose nonfishing mom had taken him below Priest to catch some of those stockers. He was flyfishing a bugger and had done well. He knew how to use that fly rod and was excited as could be. I was happy for the both of them. Most kids tag along with the adult. Here an adult tagged along with the kid.
