    I bend the plate in half and use them for roofs on bird houses. I then hang the birdhouse up in the woods at all the places we go camping & what not. I'm sure this is no doubt illegal or I'm commiting some other crime against humanity and somebodys got a problem with it. Its the best use I've found for these old plates.

    This has me thinking. If you have old plates ill buy them. I can use them for siding on my shop I figure I need about 1000 of them, but I of course don't want to pay much for them. . Hmm not near as much incentive huh?

    I'm not exactly sure which salmon the one on the plate is supposed to represent... The colors are kind'a weird. I only know it's supposed to be a salmon because it indicates "salmon". :)

    I'm surprised WA doesn't offer some manner of andromous fish plate. Perhaps someone should suggest it?

    (Whatever you do, don't let them use a bass or a carp!!!)

    Good question Gene. I don't know how true this is or not, but I had heard that when the Wildlife Program was putting the wildlife plates in motion, they asked the Fish Program to join in. The regime at the time was not interested. However, that tune changed when they became aware of how popular the plates were going to be. A salmon plate was then in the works, but by then it was too late and either the required number of signatures was not gotten and/or the moratorium on special plates kicked in. I have no idea if it will be resurrected.

    I just got a new plate for my truck last week. I went with the "Washington Wildlife" deer plate. The green matches my truck.
