Jeff Streeter, of Trout Unlimited, said trying to put an engineered plan in place to address the issue by 2017 would be “very ambitious.”

Shane Cross, an attorney for Trout Unlimited, a rancher south of Douglas and president of the Wyoming Wildlife Federation, opposes transfer.

He said Wyoming receives $1.30 in services from the federal government for every $1 paid in taxes – much higher than states such as California, which receives less than $1 back in federal services.

Wyoming would not become more independent from the federal government if it were to control the federal lands. The state would struggle without help from Washington, he said.

Cross believes lawmakers want to provide the oil and gas industry more access to the land. And that’s perfectly fine, if the state had an open and honest discussion and decides that’s the direction the Wyoming should go.

“I think we should be informed that that’s who is pushing this, so we can make that decision,” he said.

Dave Sweet, a longtime member of Trout Unlimited, an advocate for Wyoming’s fisheries and a member of the Wyoming Outdoor Hall of Fame has investigated the river downstream from Willwood since the sediment flows began. He said the extent of the fish kill is significant.

“I would be extremely surprised if there’s a single fish left in the river anywhere before, I don’t know, Lovell,” Sweet said. “No fish can survive that.”

"To me it's truly an environmental disaster as well as an infringement on private property rights along the river," said Dave Sweet, a Trout Unlimited member from nearby Cody, Wyo., who was surveying the damage Monday.

Willwood has been cited three times for exceeding turbidity limits, said Dave Sweet of Trout Unlimited.
“Are we simply going to walk out of this room and wait for the next one?” Sweet asked.
