The Northwest Sportsfishing Industry Association did have a full-time lobbyist until McBrayer quit to take up the commission seat. I think that they've replaced him, but I couldn't say for sure. ...

What a target-rich environment for reply...

Perhaps I erred in entering a discussion of fisheries issues with a political post, but since others were not separating the two, what the heck, I say.

The Washington DFW, and Oregon as well I believe, has a legislative mandate to provide commercial opportunity. Until that is changed by the legislature, you're not likely to see a change in attitude...

Maybe as OC says, I'm in denial, but the things I'm reading in the press, on the net, and in the abstracts of the report don't add up.

The confusion comes, I think, from the idea that critical...

Has anybody seen the draft recovery plan for bull trout?

The thing is out in two volumes, one for Puget Sound rivers and the other for the OP. I was wondering what the recommendations are. I know the comment period is up January 5.

While I've been a fly fisherman for a long time, I've never consciously fished for kings in the salt. I have, however, towed a lot of cut plugs for same.

The world according to Keith

This may be an unpopular view, but for the most part, I'm for salmon farming, and I think that sports fishermen should be for it as well.
