Washington State DFW is requesting your feedback... here's a chance to speak your mind (http://www.wildsteelheadcoalition.com//channels/alerts/2002/1035244107/index.htm).

Yes I got those, to start no kill of wild steelhead on all rivers at all times IMHO.

Thanks for the information. I sent in a recommendation to eliminate the use of treated salmon eggs as bait.

Some might argue that untreated eggs represent a potentially greater threat to fish through disease transfer...

I get your point that treated eggs might poison juvenile fish.

I'm not aware of any science on either point.

This makes the 7th year that I have given my two cents to the WDFW. They asked for it and I think that it behooves those of us who care about the resource to give them our reasoned opinion. Otherwise, we are part of the problem of apathy, which is a grave desease these days. Let's be proactive and give tell them what each of us would like.
