I really hope they don't. Let the fish recover. To me, its just not worth it.

It's not about recovery, with the poor returns the state needs to sell something.

Businesses and communities down there lobby for clam tides and fishing openers. It would be nice if WDFW and ODFW published easily findable lists of who lobbied for what openers. Would help a guy decide where to and where not to spend his money.

It is not uncommon for businesses or communities anywhere to lobby for fishing or hunting opportunities. In this case, word on the street is a lot of lobbying has been done by the Ilwaco and Chinook businesses.

Charter boats (Quasi commercial affiliation) have been pushing for this since it closed.

Buckmaster (Commissioner who has background in commercial fishing industry in Astoria) is friends with the charter boat folks. He and his henchmen will push for it.

Many have to wonder what the large amount of pinnipeds in the Lower Columbia have been feeding on between the salmon runs. Why isn't this problem being addressed?
Hey let's go ahead and deplete the food soure for them and maybe they will leave, hey that sounds like a good idea (fish mismanagement at it's best)....
