I'm currently working on an island in the San Jauns. The place is an electronic wasteland and I'm there four days a week so maybe it is affecting my perspective. I find it ironic that the I-5 bridge was fixed in less than 30 days but it is going to take years to open the Skagit C&R season. In fact there will be an entirely new span across the river before Hiway 20 shuts down for the winter. This is the kind of shit that can get done with a little motivation! I hope they install a sidewalk on it so we can wander out there next spring and watch thousands of steelhead swim under it. The state of Washington ignored the DEA, perhaps it is time for them to ignore NOAA, NMFS, ESA, EPA, and who ever else is in the way of common sense and fair play.
