PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A proposal to ban gillnets from the main stem of the lower Columbia River would destroy the livelihood and way of life for dozens of families, commercial fishermen from Oregon and Washington said Friday. They asked the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission to delay a decision on the proposed new rules. The commission is scheduled to vote later Friday on the proposal, and Washington's fish commission is schedule to follow next week with a vote on identical rules in Olympia.
