    White, Carbon, upper Puyallup rivers
    will close early to fishing
    Action: Close the White, Carbon and upper Puyallup rivers to fishing.
    Species affected: All game fish.

    Carbon River: from mouth to Hwy 162 Bridge in Auburn will be closed to all fishing.

    I guess you could just about cut out Puyallup River basin or Green River and insert any other river or river system. I have no idea what things were like before my arrival here a decade or so ago. I know that they are not getting better. Sad update, thanks for the information O-Radicus, my friend.

    It's hell to know that fishing is so good for us as a past time and creates jobs. And here we go next step they will be out lawing fishing equipment. You'll get arrested for possession of fishing Paraphnalia [no clue to spelling that] If you used a piece of line to tie your shoe.or a rod as a walking stick . Maybe we shouldn't buy a licence until they show us that there's fish available. would prohabition [sp again] cover fish smuggleing. I don't know where are we going from here. The closer I get to fishing the worse the chances are it seems. Happy fishin!!
