Returns of wild steelhead to Washington rivers have been on a long downward trend. In all but 11 of Washington's hundreds of rivers, wild steelhead must be released unharmed, and, by law, cannot even be removed from the water for a photo. Anglers are allowed to keep one wild steelhead a year and it can only come from one of the 11 rivers where it is allowed. The anglers of Washington have complied with these rules, and most of us support the conservation effort. What burns our asses is that the indian tribes of Washington are commercially gillnetting the hell out of these fish. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has almost no say in what the tribes do, and they remain silent out of political correctness. The federal government turns a blind eye. Don't confuse this commercial harvest with spiritual or ceremonial harvest. These are out and out for-profit commercial operations where tribal members net fish for months on end. There are no commercial steelhead fisheries in Washington for non-tribal fishers. What we are trying to do about this commercial slaughter of a dwindling resource is to get the word out about which restaurants are dealing in wild Washington steelhead. Restaurants Unlimited Inc. owns several restaurants around the country that are buying wild steelhead from Washington indian tribes. Those restaurants are listed below and the sport anglers of Washington ask that you avoid these businesses and let them know why. They are serving fish that are being commercially harvested by tribal members, despite dismal runs and bold conservation efforts by sportsmen.
