I guess my sarcasm didn't come through.....

The good news is that any fish left in there.....the one brookei or two, would be partially cooked as is....

Add the flood from the mid 2000's into the mix of industrial history and we can just call it "superfund river".....

That bing said I shot a few ducks off the west river....always from a boat.... :-)
