The twists and turns of the Columbia River story continue to play out — the latest development is Oregon Governor Brown writing to the commission (whom she appointed) asking them to revise their decision to abandon planned sunsetting of gillnets in the main-stem of the Columbia River.

We continue to be grateful that the Washington Fish & Wildlife Commission showed their leadership on this critical issue. They have been a steady hand through this, and if the Oregon Commission comes around anglers in both states will have them to thank.
