    The link I posted was updated today but looks incomplete. No Hoh netting scheduled, yah right? I believe they pull the nets on the Quillayute at noon on Thursday.

    iagree It doesn't look very accurate, but it's still an awesome resource, I didn't think they had that online.

    The waters that I fish only exhibit the effect of tribal netting on days ending with the letter y.

    Actually, we've all got it wrong.

    The Indians have been driving the fish to extinction for thousands of years, a few fish at a time. We European-Americans increased the population and introduced technology to hasten the process.

    With any luck, we'll have those native fish gone in another generation or two and we can quit arguing about who gets the credit, because in about fifty years no one will remember or care, and we'll have virtual reality streams flowing through our living rooms and we can stock them from a menu of extinct species.

    There is netting going on in the Puyallup right now. I suspect also in the Duwamish, but can't confirm. I believe tribes are constrained to what they agree to be constrained to.

    The tribes refer to themselves as the "fish people" and don't like hearing that they are thought of as damaging the resource. If there is a way to compel them to a conservation stance, it will be through public awareness and pressure.

    iagree Do like the idea of virtual fishing, I'll program mine so that the fish bite anything.

    My sincere apologies for relocating without giving you proper notification. If you stop hitting your head like that the swelling should subside in time.

    :ray1: an amendment to the State Constitution in Florida essentially ended all inshore commercial netting, with very few exceptions, in the late 80's. This was accomplished by a grassroots movement spurred on by the collapse of the inshore sport fisheries.

    The Coastal Conservation Association was instrumental and led the way in this effort...and now FL and the Gulf states have rebounding, thriving sport fisheries. We could do the same here if we quit whining and get off our asses.

    Washington is the last state in the lower 48 that has tribal netting and commercial gillnetting, with the exception of Oregon's Columbia share.
    CCA PNW is committed to reforming the fisheries here and has an amazing track record of success.

    join CCA. Let's get it on.

    Mike,

    Your're dead wrong. The tribes had been fishing the runs sutainably for thousands of years. If they had been fishing them to extinction they wouldn't have been able to use the resource for over 9,000 years. It wasn't really until the europeans got here that the runs began to be over exploited. Check your facts next time.
