Hunters, Anglers in Town to Fight to Preserve Bay

About 40 sportsmen from 17 states are in Washington this week to lobby to stop a mine from being built that they warn could pollute Bristol Bay, Alaska, home to major sockeye salmon and rainbow trout populations.

The outdoorsmen are meeting with lawmakers and the administration and urging the Environmental Protection Agency to halt the proposed Pebble Mine. As part of their advocacy effort, Trout Unlimited and several hundred other hunting and fishing groups have started savebristolbay.org and on Monday took out an ad in Politico saying, "We hunt. We fish. We say no to Pebble Mine."
