The link is to the QIN schedule for the Chehalis and Hump.

Chehalis only:

Wk 40 2 days
Wk 41 3 days
Wk 42 4 days
Wk 43 2 days
Wk 46 3 days
Wk 47 5 days

Now the ugly part. The QIN exercised their right to half across the bar but good ole WDF&W tried to stack in the Chehalis rather than pick up the slack on the Hump. ( numbers only now not if is a good or bad thing ) This resulted in 1987 Chinook to the minus for escapement with only 10,377 adults to the gravel. For those not familiar the Chinook goal is 12,364.

Straight talk time. The QIN have rights by treaty and confirmed by the courts. Done deal, period. The problem is not the QIN but rather WDF&W's absolute refusal to recognize that the QIN and Chehalis Tribe ARE the GH commercial fisheries. This thing that WDF&W R-6 is determined to maintain the " non Indian " commonly know as the ' White Boy Commercial " at all cost has gone way past ridiculous the last two years. If ever there was a doubt as to the total lack of any management of the resource by R-6 it should be gone gone gone. These guys could not manage writing instructions on how to use toilet paper without screwing it up.

If anyone wants the Fall Planning Model with the QIN dates in just PM me and I will send it to you.
