Salmo to further challenge common sense the genetic testing done the last couple of years have all the Willapa Bay streams Chinook the same. This includes hatchery and wild all streams Willapa the same fish. Now no doubt this was accomplished by overharvest on NOR's pursuing hatchery fish and much straying. The fact is Willapa was managed as a hatchery kill zone in reality. So now the policy is charting a coarse to undo this but nobody wants to understand we ain't got enough NOR's to go around. Get a good down cycle and REC's flowing in it is doubtfull in a few years if the REC does not run out of impacts and as I said just as the boosted Naselle releases show. It will be interesting at the least.
Dazed and confused.............the fog is closing in
