    But will there be any salmon or steelhead to fish for?


    “”The ball is now in the court of the Obama administration, which appeared all but absent from the hearing Friday.””

    Why do I have a bad feeling about this?

    • I have a bad feeling too. The new Administration has so many issues on its plate that they are likely to allow the old guard in place for quite a while.

      As a sidenote, Obama has been quicker to fill positions so far than Bill Clinton or George W. Bush. It usually takes a full year with a new Administration, especially when there is a shift in parties.

      No reason to be suprised, No president or administration has done shit for salmon in the last 20 years.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
