One guy even referred to this pond as "Labrador south".
Lot of unhappy campers.
Just a mention about the Great Lakes...and the 'reason' for introducing Pacific Salmonids and European Brown Trout to those systems....I'm just sayin'.

So many will say it is all about the water. These fish demand good solid releases of clean cold water...all down stream love it.

Here we have the Upper Colorado Recovery Program.

The sport fish removal program has fostered ill feelings between our division and a huge group of sportsmen and women and regular citizens.

At last accounting for this year we are at 294 Million spent since 1989 and the results are meager.

Opportunity cost of that time and money to try other efforts is so huge its mind boggling.

When man goes into the water we usually encounter a problem we are not well suited to contend with.

If folks new how prolific the shock, poison and kill was on our staff's of federal and state workers they would quiver. It's not a balanced approach in most scenarios.

This kind of action is awesome in the sense of tying to restore a beautiful species that my grandchildren may once be able to appreciate.
Even if the project fails there will certainly be something to learn from it. Sometimes suffering consequences is the best way to learn. Simply not doing anything would be sad to see, especially with such a beautiful creature Native to the beautiful waters of the US.
