    What's going on there is a crime. Maybe the water will miracle itself into the ponds.

    What they let happen to Tule Lake is an envioenmental disaster! It needs to be fully restored! Number one migration spot in North America and it’s gone!

    Yes the water is a huge political issue there. But even when there is water the birds just won't hold there anymore, hey just pass right on through to the Sac Valley. I was up there right after the opener and shot limits two days out of three.

    20 years ago that tub would have greenheads and bulls stacked like cordwood on it.

    Times have changed fellas.

    Last time LK had water before the opener it held birds just fine. Had good numbers until it froze. However, if there's no water when they get there, away they go.

    Right on! I wish more would come to this conclusion. The biologists, Environmentalists and politicians want us to be no more. This State is a pile of ****!
