The Elwha was the first wild OP river I ever saw in the mid 80's when I was checking out the area prior to moving there. I've fished it steadily over the last 18 years and I have become very attached to it. I've felt strongly about the removal of these dams and was elated when Babbitt got it pushed through.
It doesn't matter how long it takes, the rebirth of the Elwha will be one of the biggest victories for anadromous species in history!
BTW - I never heard back from WSAS about those back issues, anyone else order any?
