Photos: To catch a snagger

Wildlife Trooper Shaun Kuzakin watches from the bushes as Daren Ostlie fishes off the rocks in front of the DIPAC Macaulay Salmon Hatchery on Friday. The three coho salmon were confiscated, as well as his fishing pole with a snagging hook, which was painted pink. Ostlie was cited in September 2010 for snagging two salmon in the same area.

See these photos in a slideshow, "Snagging equals a citation."
