MOUNT ST. HELENS, Wash. — The Fire Creek Bassmasters worked closely with another club to help stop the change in regulations for smallmouth bass, walleye and catfish on the Columbia River. The two volunteers wrote letters to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and met with the WDFW director. The project required 10 man-hours. Ultimately, the clubs were unable to stop the regulation change.
This speech, which Noreen Clough presented at an American Fisheries Society meeting in Boise, Idaho, takes on Columbia River managers who want to remove bass regulations in order to protect salmon.
On any given work day, B.A.S.S. Conservation Director Noreen Clough won’t be in her office. She’s far more likely to be in, say, a Washington, D.C., meeting, or in Minnesota discovering bass anglers’ concerns.
Not that bass fishing doesn’t have him, it just makes a good title.
