Bus to Port Townsend Commission Meeting



We won a partial victory two years ago and we will not have another opportunity until 2006! We must force the WDFW to adapt "mandatory statewide release of wild steelhead with no exceptions."

The Washington Fly Fishing Club is providing a motorcoach to the Commission hearings in Port Townsend on Saturday, December 6.

If you wish to go in support of the Wild Steelhead Coalition's call for mandatory release or any other amendment to the 2004-2005 sportfishing rules, you are welcome to join us.

The bus will be in the waiting area at the Edmonds ferry terminal and will depart on the 5:50am ferry to Kingston (the early departure will get us to Fort Worden in ample time to sign up).

Parking is available near the ferry terminal.

The bus fare is $5.00. Please plan on boarding the bus in the waiting area between 5:15 and 5:30am in order for us to pay the correct ferry fares.

The bus will leave Port Townsend at approximately 5:00pm to catch the 6:30 or 7:15pm ferry back to Edmonds.

For reservations, please call Scott Hagen at (425) 673-1355 or email him at: scott4fish@comcast.net

C'mon folks, this is our last chance to stop the killing!

Great FYI Leland. Good Job!
I'm going to be there if things work out for me and I will speak out. I have faults but being reticent is not one of them.
B.C. kills no steelhead whatsoever and that should be our approach. You can fish. You can catch. But you must release, particularly these last few remaining wild fish.
But I am discouraged with trying to reach the commission. there is such a conflict of interest. They need salaries. Salaries come from licenses. Licenses sell if the steelhead are made available for killing. What to do?
When is the time of the meeting-from when to when. In what building? I'll be driving.
