Tiger muskies the answer to perch

To the editor:

I have read the recent articles on the perch netting on Phillips Lake and cannot believe the wasted time and tax money. I read Ed Shorts’ letter and agree with him on just about everything.

I have only been in Baker for about 15 years but before I moved here I heard about the trout fishery in Phillips. Even Alaskan fishermen had heard of Phillips trout. When I first fished Phillips about 15 years ago my neighbor, Sandy Sanders, took me out in his boat. We hooked one nice trout which I played to the boat and saw it was a nice 2- to 3-pound trout. When it got away Sandy exclaimed that the fish was just like they used to catch before the perch were there. I soon learned about perch and what had happened to the trout in Phillips and why this lake was no longer a popular destination sport fishery.

Wolves have all the rights in Oregon

To the editor:

It’s late at night and everything is quiet. A thief slips into your house and takes several hundred dollars worth of food from your freezer. The next night it happens again.  Two nights later the thief takes all the rent money from your wallet. Finally you set up a camera to find out who is doing this. You get the pictures and call the police who tell you that “You can’t do anything about it. If you harm the thief we’ll put you in prison.” 

Who would put up with this miscarriage of justice? Who wouldn’t be outraged? This is America and we have rights!

Disappointed by perch trapping
To the editor:
About two weeks ago, I called Tim Bailey at ODFW in La Grande to volunteer to help in the big trapping project of perch at Phillips Lake. At that time, Tim told me that they had all of the help they needed.  I ask him when this project would be happening and he told me that it would run from April 20th through the 30th.
