Ever wander what happened to your favorite river?
This beautifully written story By Bill Herzog may tell you. Writing for Wild Steelheaders United, Bill tells a story of the good old days on the Nisqually and Skagit, and takes some responsibility for what went wrong. A stark reminder that recreational fishing is not without its impact.
“Not loggers. Not land developers. Not tribal netting. We did it. We killed too many. Us.
The Nisqually’s fall was so swift, so severe, it went in just six years. There was an experimental catch and release season in 1988, but so few fish returned it too was shut down. It’s been nearly thirty years closed now. The Nisqually is barely alive with a return of 300 to 500 fish.”
