Despite all the "Doom and Gloom" that we've been hearing, an announcement is coming soon for the 2016 salmon fishing season. We have so many things to be thankful for.
We all have to work together to keep the Salmon Habitat and stock in good shape and that means some sacrifices along the way.
I think the WDFW and The other parties have done a great job, for the most part. They have worked extremely hard to walk the fine line of responsibility to bring us an opportunity to partake in another fun year of being on the water. Let's not waste our opportunity to enjoy our natural surroundings. Some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
Be good stewards and enjoy your summer. You'll never get this one back. Make sure and teach your kids to smell the flowers but leave some for those that come behind you to enjoy. May those who come behind us find us faithful.
Have fun and be safe on the water.
