Maybe if we put half the resources into habitat restoration that we put into hatcheries, native fish might begin to rebound.
Ya got that right. As long as the agencies wring their hands and tinker at the margins, and as long as some anglers are willing to be vocal dupes for those that trash rivers and then offer hatcheries as the solution, we'll be distracted from fixing the fundamental problems.
We can have healthy rivers.
And with healthy rivers come strong runs.
