Dumping refuse in Daniels Creek is disgusting to writer

I noticed in August that an area near Daniels Creek had been cleared and the refuse dumped in the creek. Not even a minnow could get through the stream after that. I know there are salmon in the creek because toward the end of July I saw three boys trying to net a big fish in the creek (I warned them it was illegal and they left).
   I have since contacted and had face-to-face meetings with two fish and game people, two sheriff's deputies and people from the King County office by Safeway and King County Parks Department all to no avail.
   There are signs by the stable at Daniels Creek Park urging people to take of care this creek. I am disgusted.
