    I used to buy the Sports Pac, just for the convenience. Can't afford it any more, so I just buy the tags I need ala cart.

    WAYNO.

    It's a rip, especially the Columbia River Basin Endorsement fee.

    Yeah, I was wondering how I was going to get the extra funds for a license and tag applications this year. Surprise! Dad got me a gift cert for them. What a relief, I didn't want to take out a second mortgage for those.

    Go look at the prices for hunting tags and you will feel a little better about the fishing costs...

    I'll bet that Oregon even charges the Disabled Vets someday. This State will stoop as low as it can for more money. I mean they got all of us Pioneer guys. So everybody is on the hit list.

    Supposedly, hunting and fishing fees pay for over half of WA DFWL budget each year.

    Look at the budget proposal for 2016-17 http://wdfw.wa.gov/publications/01649/wdfw01649.pdf
    Because of that POS Inslee, they increase the license fees and then want to reduce production giving us less opprotunity at a higher price.

    They proposed the following:
    Reduce fall Chinook salmon production by 56% at the George Adams Hatchery,
    Reduce chum, fall Chinook, and pink salmon production at the Hoodsport Salmon Hatchery,
    Close Minter Creek Hatchery,
    Reduce Shellfish Fisheries,
    Close Naselle Hatchery,
    Close Nemah Hatchery and
    Close Samish Hatchery.

    We can expect more of the same this coming September.

    Get my license through "Resident Disabled Veterans License". Do have to pay the $26.50 combined. No complaints here. Oregon is very generous to it's veterans compare to the majority of the other States.

    They don't get it, if you're buying at Freddy's. The do if it's Fisherman's, Sportsman's etc.

    Really cheeses me off that the prices keep getting higher while native fish society (NFS) has got 'em by the nads and they cut hatchery production on the Sandy/Clack. Gill nets are still in the main stem Columbia. And gillnets are getting a bunch of hatchery springers that they took from the Willamette and moved to Young's Bay. Don't forget, I believe boat tags going up in 2016 too.

    I need more than a KISS I tell ya'. She'd better be real good lookin' too!

    Hey you guys, THINK ABOUT IT!
    Sportsmen just get in the way of the bureaucracy. They would like nothing better than to drive all the license purchasers to the sidelines. They could then get all their funding through the public tit and they wouldn't have to even pretend to manage the resource . . .
    If you don't recognize it you are dumber than I thought!!
