I don't ever want to see a season like 2015....close Chehalis, mid October-December 16, Wynoochee completely closed, Wishkah, Humptulips, Satsop, closed in the lower part of the river....left open where the majority of fish needed protection.......grrrrrrrrrrrr

I like the season the way it is setup.....everyone feels a bit of the pain. Guess if you don't like the GHMP and the season the way its setup, move to King County and enjoy, maybe, no salmon fishing!!!!!!
