Hi Everyone,

The regions that may be open to mining couldn't be in a worst place for the Bristol Bay drainage. The Kvichak River is the heart blood of that area. Millions of Salmon transverse the Kvichak river every year. The Kvichak has so many salmon in the river that Salmon eggs stack up in the corners of turns at certain times of the year. Carried there by the currant. Some of Alaska's largest Rainbows live in the Kvichak and never go to sea. All the food they need is provided by the river and lake. This is a remote area that has to be protected at any cost. The Kvichak is not a long river and even a small amount of pollution will have a drastic effect on the river.

Say a pray for Bristol Bay. This is the place that most fly fishers have dreamed about fishing at least one time in their life.

Frank
