These questions all revolved around the practices out of the Quinalt’s and their steelhead hatchery and a thread that got locked. I see too many fishermen just say well I am a fisherman first and then a maybe worried about conservation second, third or fourth. The majority of these guys seem to be more worried about the numbers of steelhead they put on the bank than most, not that numbers are bad but when but when it is your first second and third focus with steelhead something is wrong in my book. That makes me truly sad that others don't think that enough to realize if they support poor hatchery practices of the Quinalt’s by fishing their systems with the protection of hey I just want to catch steelhead, that they support the people that do them and the continuation of them. Don’t others see that? So the questions are if you fish places like this and there bad practices (not marking fish, fully netting rivers including on the wild fish that aren’t on their reservation like the quinalt’s do, whackem and stackem it doesn’t matter hatchery of wild, no worries about their hatchery practices, etc) aren’t you just supporting the continuation of these bad practices? Don’t you feel a responsible to be involved in conservation (this person admitted that he wasn’t)? Do you support places that promote these places cities, shops, guides, etc (my answer is no heck I won’t even spend the night in Forks now after what their city “leaders” did 2 years ago)? Sure asking these questions will be me banned or get this thread locked really fast. With that attitude then wild steelhead are doomed. What a sad day, though I will say I have seen a lot more of this lately. JJ PS: The question was asked what do you do to help be a conservationist I have served on the BOD of a conservation group, was a webmaster for a group, am members of at least 2 others, have attended meetings, written letters, made phone calls. Etc.
