I know this is a sensitive subject, so try to be civil and intelligent in regards to your responses. I consider myself a conservationist and hold the rehabilitation of Native fish as top priority. However, I'm caught in a conundrum of also seeing the virtues of hatchery fish. For one, I like fishing for them, and without hatchery fish many of us wouldn't be fishing for steelhead at all. I know, I know, "if you cherish native fish that much than you'll sacrifice your own selfish needs." Well, I guess I'm selfish then and human for that sake. Without hatchery fish many guides that 'you' hire wouldn't have jobs. It's kind of like saying you don't want trees cut down but you want a 3000 sq. ft. cedar home, or soft toilet paper. How do you weight in here? Be cool.
