St Patrick's Pot Luck
PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT
Puget Sound Anglers takes the safety of our members seriously and at this time it was decided that the meetings will go on. We do ask that if you are sick, have a compromised immune system or if you just uncomfortable with being in a public setting PLEASE STAY AT HOME. We will continue to monitor the Corona Virus outbreak and how it may affect future meetings. Thank you for your understanding.
We will be celebrating St Patrick’s Day with a corned beef and all the fixins. This will be a potluck event so please bring your favorite salad or side dish. The club will provide the corned beef, potatoes and cabbage. We will also be holding our yearly big fish awards so I hope you have your entries in. It’s also the last month to get your membership renewed for 2019. Starting in April we will be shutting down Reel News service on accounts that have not been renewed. We don’t like having to do this so please get that dues paid. Bob will have a fully stocked raffle so bring a few bucks for tickets. We will not have a speaker at this meeting. As it’s purely a social night with awards and a chance to visit with other members. In case you haven’t been to a March meeting before, I must tell you that Jan, Drew and Maxine cook some of the best corned beef you will ever have. It’s going to be a great evening with lots of laughs, I hope to see you there.

Puget Sound Anglers Mission Statement
The Puget Sound Anglers us an organization of independent chapters, with common goals and interests, bound only by integrity and fellowship, with the goal of preserving, protecting and enhancing the sport fisheries of Washington State.
The general outline of the organization is for each chapter to remain an independent nature. The State Board was formed with members from each of the chapters and is responsible to those chapters. The State Board is to assist in forming new chapters and promote membership. In addition, it is to help communications among the chapters regarding fund raising and projects of interest to all
Puget Sound Anglers Position Statement
The Puget Sound Anglers organization exists to enhance the opportunities for sport fishing through educational, scientific, governmental and other activities consistent with the preservation and enhancement of fishery resources. We work for the benefit of our members, affiliated organizations, and others in the recreational fishing community who share our view that common sense and good science is critical to the proper management of our fishery resources. Changes in our position statements may occur when new information relating to the issue becomes available.
Puget Sound Anglers will fight to protect access and keep recreational fishing open on all waters of the state unless there is a clear indication that recreational sport fishers are the primary cause of a specific conservation problem and that less severe conservation measures, such as gear restrictions, bag limits, size restrictions, quotas, or closed seasons will not adequately provide for conservation and management of the affected stocks of concern.
If closed areas are proposed to be established, any such closure must be supported by the best available scientific information with the area identified by specific land points or latitude/longitude boundaries. Additionally, any closed area regulation shall include specific measurable criteria to determine the conservation benefit of the closed area on the affected stocks of fish and shall sunset at the end of three years unless scientific data is presented to maintain the closure. Continuance of the closure will be on an annual basis to allow for periodic review of the continued need for the closed area. If the closure is not supported by the scientific evidence collected, the closed area will be re-opened to recreational fishing in the next regulation cycle by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission.
