Conservation Director: Dan Anderson
Bob Harriman made a motion in our November Meeting that the
federation send a letter acknowledging to the state opposing the
suggested changes to our lakes . The letter was submitted to the
state on behalf of the WSBF.
Dan gave a summary of what all took place
in Olympia regarding the WDFW Rule Simplification Proposal.
We are very proud that we were able to come
together as a group and voiced our concerns that impact our state
fisheries. It is my honest opinion that of message was well received
by the state commissioner.
The bass fishing community came out as a
force against the rule change.
Ultimately our message was perceived well
and the Rule simplification proposal did not pass.

Co-Anglers to qualify for one the min six Co-Angler spots on the
2018 state team)
This year will also be the first year that the WSBF
is allowing single entries into the State Qualifier events. The new
entry is being well received in the fishing community and we can
expect to see an increase of participation due to the new Changes.
We have also changed the entry fee for Co-Anglers down
to $200 per angler. We hope that this will attract new and more
participation from the Co-Anglers.
