Mike I could not find your original thread about that 6 mile stretch of the Hoh river, to attach this comment to.
I just wanted to say that I think you did a really good job of pointing out a few important things.
( In an article that you wrote recently)
Most importantly though you brought it all home by letting people know that there is an avenue for an angler with a disability to apply for the special use permit which can be requested for what sounds like any situation. The angler just needs to write a request explaining their desire and need. On the surface it would seem like a dead end, and that people writing the rules have not looked at the entire population. But we now can see there is a way to request access.
My daughter fishes with the disabled person's license. I have spoken and dealt with the WDFW ADA rep, and found this person to be VERY supportive.
Thanks for shining a light on this point.
