Last Chance to Save Area 9!
I have heard from sources that we have one last chance for a last minute stay of execution.
If you are concerned about the closure of this beach fishery (and boats too), send an email to WDFW Director Koenings at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is what I sent. Please DO NOT COPY. It will be much more effective if it is your own words.
We are in the last hour of our appeal process. Send asap.
I am very upset that the WDFW is closing Area 9 to all salmon fishing during July in exchange for a chinook kill season during April.
Isn't this closing terribly unfair to people who, during tough economic times, are looking for an inexpensive summer holiday at the Area 9 state parks (Casey, So. Whidbey, Flagler etc.) who will want to fish from the beach; don't have or can't afford boats; and definitely those of us ply the beaches with our flyrods in the best area in Puget Sound to catch and release salmon from the beach?
I implore you to intervene in the North of Falcon process going on now in Vancouver and stop this July closure in Area 9 and show me that the WDFW has a social conscience.
