Groups: No compromise on steelhead

Two of the conservation groups involved in events that led to the pending closure of Idaho’s steelhead season Saturday have signaled they have no intention of backing off from their belief that wild fish need more protection.

Draft comments from the Conservation Angler and the Wild Fish Conservancy to Idaho’s Steelhead Fisheries Management Evaluation Plan indicate the groups believe NOAA Fisheries should not approve the document that would allow Idaho to hold steelhead fishing seasons and that rushed approval of the plan could lead to a lawsuit — this time aimed at NOAA Fisheries.
