    One down! Unless, like in the other thread on here marked "fraud", they still serve them and call them something else. Nah, they wouldn't do that.

    Money talks and talk walks. Offer the tribal community and commercials enough $$ and they'll sell their rights. I do believe eliminating those fisheries would result in significant improvement...even a C&R on the Skagit ;)
    We need a fund/donation campaign started and perhaps matched dollar for dollar by the state to build enough of an offering to get them looking -- everything can be bought at the right price.

    Nice work Jason! Unfortunately bennysbuddy is right. As long as the native americans have millions rolling into their casinos it is very unlikely that we could pay them enough to quit commercially harvesting steelhead, especially the puget sound tribes and the quinalts. I believe for most of the tribal fishermen its more of a recreation to make a few bucks on the side and a way to stick it to the man.
