Exclamation Support Wild Steelhead!

Attention!,
Your opportunity to support wild steelhead!

If have not done so yet please remember to send in your Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) rules proposal packets in by July 18th. Please request in your proposal packet “ Statewide release for all wild steelhead, no exceptions” It is important that you use those words exactly because the WDFW’s default statewide policy is targeted as Wild Steelhead Release (only hatchery marked fish allowed for harvest). Harvest of wild steelhead is, however, allowed on systems that are consistently seeing run-sizes that exceed escapement goals. The following is a press release from the WDFW and a link to the website to obtain a proposal packet:
