No what we should be screaming for is for them to acknowledge that their monitering just burns up money whike providing no benefit to anyone.
Of course there will be some benefits to having the Skagit fishery opened. What about the hundreds of anglers that may participate? What about the small business owners of the upper Skagit towns (motels, gas stations, tackle/fly shops, etc.)? What about the sci techs themselves who are creeling the fishery? What about the department that will undoubtedly sell more licenses as a result of the opener? While none of those reasons are as important as conducting a safe fishery for the actual steelhead population, the creel monitoring is what allows us to know what that impact is. While you may not agree with the costs of conducting the monitoring, the reality is that is what it costs...whether you or anybody else likes it or not.
If you would have wrote something like "The cost of monitoring the fishery, in my opinion, is not worth the risk of conducting the fishery because of the following reasons...then that would have been acceptable. But to simply state there will be no benefit to anyone is just a little ridiculous.
