Why'd they forget how to grow, POTATOS?

It's becomming more and more difficult to purchase any "Russet Potatoes", from Washington, Oregon or Idaho that have any resemblence to REAL POTATO TASTE. For several years they blamed it on to much irrigation, but i'm skeptical, even purported "Organic Grown", Brands don't taste right. I've just purchased "Fingerling Potatoes", that have always been a delicious indulgence but they tasted blah. My pallete still does it job, the potatoes aren't doing theirs. Am I nuts or hasn't anyone else noticed this? Are "Maine or Long Island" Russets still being sold ? Always liked the taste, but not available in Pacific NW. If they can be sent mail order, and still taste like potatoes i'll order them.
