    One consistent complaint I've heard since I started fly fishing 26 years ago is that we don't have enough game wardens in Washington State.

    This came announcement came in my email inbox today. I really wanted to attend the one meeting the meeting in Lyle but it will be tough getting down there in time after work. I wonder if some live discussion there can be half as heated as some of the wild vs. hatchery, in or out of the water...

    So I was planning to finally get some fishing in this weekend and just realized my Discovery Pass and WDFW pass are in my wife's car and she's out of town! Do I have to pay feed now if I want to fish places that need those?

    There was a thread about this a few weeks back, but now that WDFW's fee increase proposal is being taken up by the state legislature, it seems to be mostly flying under the radar.
