You know that we think alike, I agree with your 2 emails to the Director and to other WDFW staff.

Chehalis River closure is not the 1st, 4 years ago WDFW did the same thing, closed the Chehalis River, the Wynoochee, the Satsop....the closing was a "fire from the hip" response to less fish in the QIN and NT fisheries....so the easy way was to use the conservation bit, and shut down the sport fishery for Coho....Now there could have been a fishery for summer run steelhead, on the Wynoochee and a legal fishery for Chum, on all the rivers......nope, take the easy way....shut it all down....grrrrrrrr

I paid my money and don't even get OPPORTUNITY, like Ron Warren is always talking about.....grrrrrrrrrr
