Good article, I agree. We had a friends daughter who was hooked up to a ventilator on and off for a week over the holidays and all they could diagnose for her was “a strand of the flu”. Hoping with our steady numbers we get on the water as soon as the stay at home is lifted May 5th! Anyone think the tribes will keep us out of neah/ la push past that?

I talked to them (La Push) yesterday, they said they don’t know yet but they would keep the website and FB up to date as soon a decision is made.

    Sorry for you guys in Washington. Tomorrow California Fish & Game Commission are meeting to discuss fishery closures. Some, including the owner of this board, believe it is only Eastern Sierras because of Trout season.

    Im guessing they want to close the whole Fishery including Saltwater. Based on what Im reading here, Im sure CFG have looked at Washington and what your Commission did. If Im correct, we may not see fishing this year. If Im wrong, hurray for us.

    Would you say Wdfw “just” parrots the governor or would you say that they parrot him as the duct tape their hands to their ankles and let our “co-managers” work on them? Or is it with them?

    It really a ugly dance of all of the above. It will continue as long as their is a democratic governor in office. The tribes support the Democratic Party, and we’re one of Inslee’s biggest campaign supporters. Follow the money. It usually leads to the fire

    I think it’s time to give up an entire season and just get our own permit. Whenever you are controlled by someone they will always get they rib eye and you will get the rump roast tailings.

    Boy good luck getting someone other than a Dimmmmm in that office. Last Republican was Spellman in 1981 and he was a single termer. More than likely Seattle will have to fall into Puget Sound from an earthquake to get a Dimmmmm out of that office. Hope I'm wrong but......

    I would put people back to work and then start opening fishing, state lands etc or it’s going to be a shit show as everyone goes a little whacky after being closed up for so long. Can you imagine the traffic jams, it’s bad when 3/4 of the state is at work, now turn them all loose at once!

    I hope people try to use a little common sense when they go out as they start turning the world back on.

    And let’s not forget the HUGELY destructive organizations that claim to protect wild fish but find themselves by suing the state to shut down hatcheries. They are a big part of why the pie is shrinking every year and the fighting gets worse. Wild fish... genetically specific populations that only return to a certain stream... yet we shut down areas for “strays”?

    I personally think that WFC and groups like them should be held accountable for starving the whales. The drop in hatchery production is directly correlated to the drop in total returns.

    Salmon forecasts suck this year.

    That is how I am reading it. Got a call in to a buddy involved in process. He had to hang up and get in on final season setting conference call. We will know our fate soon. Not looking good for Winter BM.

    Yep, get ready to pound your flounders men. I am usually a glass half full type guy but I am so tired of this one sided b.s. It might be the year to not buy a license.
