Lynden citizens sign Petition Asking
Permission t» I'se Dip-Nets and
I'ish for Stcolheads
Hundreds of Lyndon citizens are
signing a petition this week urging
the State fisheries officials to grant
them the right to continue to take
fish for their own use from the Nook- i
with a dip-net or pole, at all
i times during the year. j
! Action taken by county officials ,
in arresting dip-netters, after the
practice has been permitted for near- \
ly a score of years, is responsible for j
the protest. New rulings would
close the river to steel-head fishing ,
over the winter, and as this is the best .
sport of the year, the fishermen want j
these orders set aside.
The petition will be at Baldwin's j
Pool Hall until Saturday night .and }
;all who are interested in requesting j
that these unjust measures be set
aside, are urged to go there and put .
their names down. |ij
The following is the text of the j
j "We. the undersigned taxpayers of
ithe State of Washington and the ,
County of WhatCOU), do hereby re
spectfully petition that you grant .
.them the right to take fish from the
Nooksark River with a dip-net or
pole to be held in the hand, for their
own use. We believe in so doing, we
are not harming the fishing industry 1
nor hurting any interests by such few
fish as may be caught. .
"Therefore we respectfuly ask that
jyou instruct the deputy wardens to J
notify the people through the news
papers of the right to so fish."
