Funny how WDFW and the tribes scated by the ESA and their own wild salmonid policy to do whatever they want, wherever they want.
While ESA does not apply yet to the chehalis except for bull trout, the WSP says they will meet and/ or exceed escapement goals unless they demonstrate poor habitat capability to benefit from those spawners. So lets see the data demonstrating poor habitat quality to excuse the current dismissal of wild escapement needs. They cant do it, unless they load their models with their own assumptions about habitat capability. And that isnt science, it is fitting models to suit their pre-held assumptions.
