"Rally for the Rivers" in Denver

in Denver Thursday, Jan. 26 outside the EPA building downtown. The goal is to let our state and federal decision-makers know that the Upper Colorado and Fraser Rivers--beloved by generations of anglers--are on the verge of ecological collapse due to water diversions. Unless our leaders do the right thing for the rivers and ensure healthy flows, these magnificent waters face a long, sad decline.  Speakers include Field and Stream magazine editor-at-large Kirk Deeter and CTU president Sinjin Eberle.

Want to learn more? Check out the www.DefendtheColorado.org website--and be sure to sign the petition.  Raise your voice for one of our greatest Western rivers, before it's too late. . .

The article by Scholfield on saving trout from irrigation canals in Wyoming reminded me of an incident 20 years aqgo camping at Dragoon Creek; a DNR campground about 20 miles north of Spokane Wa. Dragoon Creek has a population of rainbows and white fish. On a camping trip there, a local took us around the area and the irrigation canals all contained populations of small rainbows.
Let the local TU chapter in Spokane know.

Thanks Andrew -- I'll pass along that information. This is a problem over much of the West, so lots of opportunity for fish rescue by local chapters . . .
