it wouldn't pass. If we were to give up our option to retain wild steelhead, it woul presure on the Native Americans to give up their rights to retain.

Just got to keep trying. Iit will happen one day. The only problem iis, wil it end voluntarily, or by forced closure because of depleted stocks???
