If they continue closing rivers to Steelhead fishing they should make release of Wild Steelhead mandatory statewide. They should have done that anyway as the closures in recent years just shifted the angler pressure (including new guides) to the few remaining runs, mostly on the Olympic Peninsula rivers. The results have been very bad. If they had maintained the fish for "maximum sustained spawning" the fish would have had a chance. As it stands the ESA listings on Puget Sound fish should have been applied long ago. As far as I am concerned the management of our fisheries hasd always been a political football and the science has always been on the bench. Closing Steelhead fishing would be the best thing for the fish at this point.
