    Black Wolf on the E side

    Wolves in Washington state is a joke. Why reintroduce? All they do is kill. What do they do that's beneficial? Nothing..... All that's going to happen is a complete drop in the wildlife populations and confrontations with people. I wish common sense still existed!!!!!!!

    All I can say is last weekend it was great for pinks and silvers. I fished the derby yesterday and it was slooooowwwww.... Found humpies at 150' on the rigger along with lots of blackmouth. Silvers took a long time to get. Fished 250-600' of water.
