Re: Petition for Open WDFW/Tribal NOF Meetings

We have sent a letter to the NWIFC, Chairwoman Lorraine Loomis regarding their objection to the transparency issue in the NOF meetings. In her recent article calling for more cooperation and trust building she says "WE" need to work together to better our fisheries, so we are asking her to end her o...

Re: Salmon forecast - public meeting.

We will be at this meeting. Educating and asking questions... One thing that Warren double talks about the North of Falcon process is he mentions "The public plays an important role in shaping salmon fisheries across the state each year," Warren said. "We encourage people to participate either by at...

Re: Petition for Open WDFW/Tribal NOF Meetings

Thanks Toni for the link. Very interesting article on the impact on the sport fishing retailers! I commented on the story and will try and reach out to Gabe Miller as well to see if SportCo and Far West Sports will help support the petition. My initial contact with them was less than supportive. The...

Focus on Fee Increase as a Club Hits Your Head

We have got a number of MAJOR issues concerning our fisheries at the moment. One is the proposed license fee increase. It's important, but while our attention is focused on the fee increase, another 3 point assault on our rights as sportsmen and women is going full force, and is currently flying und...

The river was never opened for Rec fishing, although Tribal fishing was taking place: Here is a response I received from Mr. David Trout regarding my question back in Dec. on if we were going to ...

SO, with just Greg and I we got 75 signed petitions. We also passed out a lot of flyers so more may sign on line. WE COULD OF DONE A LOT BETTER...

Re: Petition for Open WDFW/Tribal NOF Meetings

If I may re-focus for a moment. The petition is very specific in it's goal. It is to allow public oversight in the Tribal/WDFW negotiations. We are not even necessarily asking to have people physically IN THE ROOM. Even a live video feed might work. As it stands now, the Co-managers are opposed to A...

Re: Petition for Open WDFW/Tribal NOF Meetings

We have many small family run commercial fishermen who've signed the petition. Many understand the point that Tim Hamilton makes that the issue is not Commercials vs Recreational's. The issue is over harvest and unaccountability in our fisheries and dirty deals are done, for the most part without th...

Re: Petition for Open WDFW/Tribal NOF Meetings

Tomorrow is the start of the Washington Sportsmen Show in Puyallup. If you attend the show and see either myself or the other volunteer (Greg) walking the floor and passing out flyers, please stop and introduce yourself.

We will be doing our best to get the word out to as many as we can.

Hey Bay Wolf - I want to take a moment and thank you for starting this and for keeping it going so enthusiastically. Legally, it looks to me like we are screwed - at least for now. Continued pressure might lead to future lawsuits and possibly some changes. However, if we do nothing, then nothing wi...
