There is a special public meeting coming up next week in Pateros with the Department of Fish and Wildlife. The purpose of the meeting is to invite the public to comment and discuss issues that have arisen due to drought, wildfires and low returns of salmon and steelhead to our region. “This is an informal opportunity to talk with our fish and wildlife biologist and enforcement officers about these issues, whether they relate to post-wildfire habitat recovery, this summer’s new wild Chinook salmon fishery, or other concerns area residents might have,” said Jim Brown, Region 2 Director of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Brown said the WDFW staff will provide updates on some issues, but that most of the meeting will be dedicated to questions, comments and discussions with those who attend. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 19th, and will be held at the Howards on the River Central Building, at 233 Lakeshore Drive in Pateros. The meeting is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. This is a great chance to meet WDFW staff in person and address concerns. I plan on attending and hope to see you there.
