WDFW’s January meetings start on Friday the 13th. Yep, Friday the 13th. Think that’s a bad omen?
Among the key topics on the agenda is discussion and we expect a decision on if Washington will follow Oregon’s footsteps and break the promises they’ve made about sunsetting Non-Tribal gillnet fisheries on the main stem of the Columbia River. Beyond simply honoring their promises — recreational fishermen have literally funded this transition by purchasing their Columbia River endorsement over the past few years. To backslide now is not only an ethical breach, it’s a financial one too.
The commission is accepting written comments until January 6th, so there only 2 days left for us all to use our single biggest asset — which is our thousands of voices. We need to all not only take the time to make our opinions heard, but we have to each ensure our handful of close friends all do this too. Share, evangelize, encourage. This is how movements get momentum.
The folks over at CCA have done a great job making it easy for you — use their link below to send your thoughts along, then share this post with all your fishing buddies!
