This sham of a gillnet fishery supposedly targeting hatchery Chehalis steelhead in December (5 days a week, historically beginning latter half of November) has been the death knell for late wild coho in the system.

An intellectually honest accounting of steel vs coho encounters in this fishery would readily reveal just which species is the true target.
