Fishing has been closed on some WA tributaries to protect spawning steelhead, however, recreational suction dredge mining still continues. This makes no sense. If you live in WA, please contact your legislators and ask them to vote yes for SB 5322 and HB 1261. It is time to respect taxpayer investment on our waters and fisheries by adding commonsense rules that will shield them from the impacts of this activity.
