I will take a copy of this letter to the Advisory Group which will be helping the agency draw up the "new and improved" Willapa Plan.

First order of the day should be changing the priority of the plan from a salmon harvest management plan to a salmon conservation plan.

This is one basin where ALL of the cards lie in the lap of WDFW. There is no running for cover for blunders under the guise of tribal co-management. WDFW owns it ALL.

Wasn't too long ago that Phil Anderson publicly gave the Region 6 Staff a grade of D- in "managing" Willapa Bay. I have confidence the new Fish Program leadership will do much more to change that.
