WA. Fish & Game public meeting will discuss proposed fishing limits

CLARKSTON, WA - For the first time, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife leaders are coming to Clarkston for a public forum.

Right now the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is working on fishery limits and predictions but they want to know what the public thinks about their proposed plans.

According to Fish Biologist Glen Mendel, they will present run predictions of the Columbia River for spring, summer and fall Chinook as well as Sockeye. Usually they keep their meetings in the Tri-Cities but this year they'll be traveling to Clarkston as well.

"A local individual that thought we needed a voice," said Asotin County Commissioner, Jim Fuller. "He got them to set up a meeting, so please attend."

By having lower fish limits they're able to have longer, dependable seasons but the public might have a differing opinion.
