I was not aware that this has gone on for years. I am new to the area. I have become aware of the plight of these fish in my time here mostly through Doug Rose's book "Color of Winter". Escapements, gene pool degradation, 1974 Boldt decision, tribal netting, etc... all new to me. Wild steelhead became available last winter at an east coast grocery chain called Wegman's. An internet community similar to this one that is run by a local fly shop (Oak Orchard Fly Shop) became aware of the situation. Although thier game is lake run rainbow's, they began a campaign of visit's and emails to state thier dissatisfaction. The responses went from standoffish to conciliatory. The fish came off the shelves, but this may be due to them becoming unavailable. We will have to wait and see what happens this year. In light of this, and the previous post on the Washington D.C. restauranteer, you can imagine my surprise when I saw that huge fish on ice right in the backyard of the people I assumed to be most passionate about the situation. Definitely dissapointing.....Who'd have thought?
