I was checked by a WDFW officer a week ago while shooting pictures by the Samish River. Funny, when he approached me, he laugh and said when he saw my truck he thought I was poaching. He then asked if I had a pass in the truck. I said yes and we talked for awhile. On his way back to his truck I watched to see if he looked for my pass. He did. He also showed me a couple of pictures of some beautiful wild steelhead caught from the Samish during a test fishery. The fish are there.
