Received a text from my good buddy Rich Zellman yesterday telling me the state is thinking about opening up a kill fishery on wild steelhead in the Umpqua. Read below his note and please write a letter to the state. These are special fish that need to be saved…
Need a favor. The Umpqua is being proposed for a winter wild fish kill. The decision comes down this Friday. Could you write a quick email to the odfw?
Doesn’t need to be lengthy. Just something like you value the Umpqua’s robust wild steelhead run and spend your hard earned money to come to catch and release these wild fish so they keep returning and you do too. Add your own thoughts too, trust you feel the same as I do on this subject. Keep the Umpqua wild! A few sentences can go along way.
