Ridiculous! We can go buy groceries surrounded by people but can't go out on or boats to fish?

Lets see if the Governor has the balls to enforce the same standards to the Tribal and Commercial fisheries. I am guessing not.

Exactly!! Last week I was in two grocery stores and could not believe how many people were picking up fruit, vegetables and other products and then putting them back. Not to mention using self check out one after another no gloves no disinfectant. But I can't go fishing in a boat or from the beach.
Ridiculous indeed. :finger: WDFW and the Gov.

What a joke. I feel really bad for you guys. Make your voices known. I hope other states don't follow suit....

Inslee is an idiot! Have you seen the list of "essential jobs"?

Apparently they shut down the fishing to protect game wardens and fish checkers.

I will go tomorrow down to John Wayne Marina just to see if there is anyone out fishing and that will tell me a lot. I walked along the bluff today in front of my house to get off the computer for an hour and there was a load of boats fishing off the West side of Protection Island.

Crazy times!

In all fariness this is a treaty state so it's a federal ruling from what I understand. That's why they are able to fish all through the year.

Our Gov. Brown is in heavy competition with Inslee for the title... Oregon now closing recreational fishing on the Columbia... No mention of Commercial (read gill nets). However, fish checkers have been classified as not essential. I wonder if that applies to the folks that are supposed to be checking gill net take. If not, it will likely be Katie bar the door as they then clean the rivers even more. Might prevent a couple people getting sick, but sure as hell will heavily impact the remnant fish runs that are struggling to survive.
