CLUB MESSAGE

Those of us in the South Sound are especially aware of the decrease in the number of salmon returning to our area. Fortunately this year was an exception and many of us were able to not only fish for, but actually catch both Chinook and Coho salmon in area 13. Although I would like to think that this is the harbinger of things to come, I am not optimistic. The WDFW and tribal hatcheries and the Squaxin’s net pen continue to release many thousands of salmon smolts into the South Sound, but recent studies have shown that the vast majority of these fingerlings fail to survive the passage to the open ocean. Several years ago Long Live the Kings and the Pacific Salmon Foundation of Canada joined together to study this problem by creating the Salish Sea Marine Survival Project. This project combines the work of many federal, state, tribal, academic and private and non-profit organizations in an effort to define the problems facing juvenile salmon and steelhead and find solutions to them. Michael Schmidt, Deputy Director, Long Live the Kings will provide us an update of this project at our next meeting on November 2, 2017. Dennis Knutz provided a very informative presentation of squid fishing if Puget Sound at our October meeting. Dennis has many years of experience as a squid fisher and has promised to put together an outing for those interested in learning more. Further information will be forthcoming as soon as he can find a location in the South Sound large enough for a group outing. While on the subject of outings, the officers and board are trying to determine what kind of outings members are interested in. If you have ideas for future outings please feel free to let of us know. It’s a month away, but we are in the planning stage for our annual Christmas banquet on December 7, 2017. Dee Glenn would appreciate any help you can provide in planning for this event. If you are interested give her a call at 360-491-0431 or an email at deeglenn2@comcast.net. For those new to the club the Christmas banquet is a potluck with the club providing ham, turkey, punch and snacks. It will begin a social hour at 6:00 PM and there will be large raffle at the close of the evening. This is also the event at which we elect our officers for the next year. The offices open for election are President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer and 2 Board Members. If you are interested in running for any of these positions please contact any current officer.   - Vice President Allen Morrow
