What would people think about a proposed ballot initiative banning the harvesting of any Wild Steelhead? This would have no actual legal effect as any treaty with the tribes would trump this hypothetical initiative. If the initiative were to pass this would be a tremendous show of state wide support for the preservation of Wild Steelhead. I think that such a symbolic show of support bring more leverage to the bargaining table with the tribes. This initiative would also banned the non-tribal harvesting of wild steelhead as well, which would show a commitment by the sportsman to save wild steelhead. At a time where environmental issues seem to be moving to the forefront the time may be soon to make such a move. Lastly, this would take the power out of the hands of WDFW when the time comes to reconsider wild steelhead retention. Any thoughts???
