For, I'm Eric Granstrom. If you walk around the Wenatchee Valley Sportsmen Show this weekend at the Town Toyota Center, you'll probably hear conversations about salmon fishing. Which will also, I'm sure, include grousing about management, opportunity, vanishing salmon, etcetera. And once again, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife next week begins a series of 20 meetings statewide to allow the public to comment and have a say in the salmon-setting process. Each year state, federal and tribal fishery managers gather to plan the Northwest's recreational and commercial salmon fisheries. This series of meetings – involving representatives from federal, state and tribal governments and recreational and commercial fishing industries – is known as the North of Falcon process. It begins next Tuesday in Lacey with Department and Tribal biologist forecasts on salmon runs. Similar meetings and discussions will traverse the state over the next month and a half to gather public input. Our chance in Eastern Washington comes March 28th in Wenatchee at the Chelan PUD and March 29th at the Kennewick Irrigation District. Both meetings run from 6-to-8pm. I've included a link on our Facebook page for more information. It's your chance to have a say. Until next time, Good Fishing!
