This deserves a new thread of its own.

As someone who has spent the past decade in the trenches fighting the good fight in Grays Harbor, I request that the MODS keep it stuck to the ABSOLUTE top of the board until the NOF process for 2013 is complete.

Rivrguy is to be commended for his tireless efforts to help bring the light of day on the harvest abuses perpetrated on the salmon stocks of Grays Harbor and the Chehalis Basin. This website lays it all out there in full living color. Anyone who has fished our local waters owes it to themselves to click on the link below and explore the ENTIRE site. The video tutorials are especially eye-opening.

WDFW is fully aware of what's going on.

The Commission, while somewhat insulated from the issue by WDFW staffers has been apprised by public testimony on these harvest abuses on no less than three occasions over the past decade. While commissioners may lack the detailed technical expertise of Fish Program staff, they have been made aware of our concerns.

So again, have a look-see and feel free to comment on what you read/see/hear.
