Nice to hear, especially after seeing gillnetters in the river from Chinook to Portland today.

Gillnetter have sifted out most of the run and will have another chance tonight to get whats left. Oh and by the way, here's your crumbs morons, because the DFW knows that you can't ban together to stop gillnetters. If you don't feel used, then continue doing what you have always done.

If you feel totally violated, join the CCA and ban together to stop this nonsense.

This is killing me...I couldn't fish the last weekend before it closed, and I leave town tomorrow when it opens...and will still be out of town next weekend. My timing is impeccable. Ah well, might as well head to the coast and fish in the rain this morning!
