Not sure who Whitedog is, but yeah, there were a lot of employees that definitely kept up with that area.
I cruise the general fish chat section from time to time during work. I'm lucky to have a supervisor that believes this is an important avenue to get information out to you guys, plus assist when there are questions about this area (southwest Washington). Bruce contacted me a few years back after seeing me on another forum asking if I could participate.
A forum like this can be a great way for our program (region 5) to get feedback on what you guys are seeing, what you like, what you don't like, what can we change, what can be do better or different. I don't care what anyone says, our job as state employees also consists of being available to YOU as the public. In this day and age of technology - what better way to keep in touch?!
Your thoughts and input are a benefit as far as I'm concerned. And even though we can't always make the changes you guys want, don't think that some of us aren't trying!
