Great read. Unfortunately, it's all too true - for most of our rivers, not just the Hoh. The magazine should ask permission to publish this editorial. It would get a lot of good press - for the right reasons, perhaps. It might even cause someone to release a wild fish that otherwise wouldn't - or better yet... someone might keep a tighter lip about a certain spot.
I do things the old fashioned way... my kids will learn about the productive runs from me - and they will teach their kids... assuming there are rivers left with steelhead in them.
