Oregon Department of F******and Wildlife are currently in the begining stages of working to a ban on all egg and bait cures in the state. They are sighting smolt deaths as the primary reason. ODFW is attacking fisherman instead of dealing with the real problem of smolt survival (Alsea river winter steelhead smolt suffer Avian predation rates as high as 80% some years). A reduction in avain predation needs to be addressed first before baning cures. Please call or write your state rep and ODFW and let them know that attacking fisherman instead of the real problem will not be tolerated.
