(You decide if you should eat Fultano's Pizza, buy boards at Astoria Builder Supply or Tires at Erhast. Does your sportfishing and business dollar nees to support these guys? TWS)

Spring Chinook regulatory decisions and seasons will be set in February. Jerry Gutzwiler WDFW Commission chairman said only that, "there's a tremendous amount of passion on those Columbia salmon," but wouldn't hint about what the commissioners will do in February. "Its tough, because we have to look at future guidelines within the context of the conservation needs of those fish. We have an ever-increasing demand for these resources and only a finite number of salmon"

I just found the last paragraph interesting especially after the 4 - 4 split vote. These businesses around Astoria and Clatskanie will be on my "no shopping list".

The above information is why letters are still very important for sportsfisherman to read, sign, email and mail.

I applaud "The Reel News" and Terry Sheely for stepping up to the plate and supporting what they believe in with action. Tup:
