A lot of steelhead fishermen {who a}'e white), use the river road to fish here, they also are taxpayers and they holler about the deplorable condition of the road. They have a right to holler, but not at the Indian. The finger should be pointed in the right place, at the County of Mason, and the crews who are supposed to keep up the roads. I feel as long as the grader has to come right by the river road, let the driver drop the blade down and do a little good. He sure is not going to wear out the blade up in the air.
