After reading ******'s "Skykomish Combat" post, I'd hate to see everyone missing out on an opportunity. July 18th is the cut off date for public proposals on changes to the sportfishing rules. If you visit <http://www.wa.gov/wdfw/fish/regs/2004prop.htm>, you can download the complete 2004-2005 Sportfishing Rule Proposal Package. Though I haven't checked out the form yet, it would seem that this is the last opportunity this year to effectively raise your voice to the powers that be. As soon as I finish this post, I'll be downloading the form. I would, as well, like to see those internal combustion powered guide boats banned from the rivers, as they kill the smolts and violently impose upon waters bank anglers are already fishing.
