i know how it would be viewed. the reason all these fish are in perile is because everyone only cares about their own interests instead of what is right.
Here's what would be right. Stop fishing for wild steelhead. Punch your 1 wild fish on your card and max out your card (even if you retain zero) with hatchery fish. Turn it into the state. They use their forecast for the amount of fish that are available for harvest both tribal and non-tribal. If we all maxed our cards, it would mean there is a smaller portion available for their 50%. We are entitled to our 50% also. If we "take" less than our 50%, the tribes can harvest that portion. If you're serious about helping the fish, stop fishing for them. Or, just keep posting how much of a clusterphuck it is on the OP.
