A letter response I got back from Mr Wu after questioning the gill netters. I can post the whole letter if there is interest.
Does anyone know if fishing licenses are public record... Id like to see how often mr wu actually buys a licenses, he says he is a "sports fisherman" cough coughAs a sports fisherman myself, I am knowledgeable about the economic impact recreational fishers have upon local economies. That is why I am a firm believer in the value of federal hatcheries to offset the damage done to salmon and steelhead runs by the hydroelectric system. I have consistently supported increased funding for the hatchery system and will continue to do so.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to let me know your views and share your first hand information. Should you have additional questions of concerns, please contact me at 503-326-2901 or 800-422-4003.
With warm regards,
