See, I dont trust biologists or government agencies.......and I work for one. If I want real information about a subject, I will talk to someone whos livelyhood has depended upon certain aspects. These people spend their lives in the field, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, they see what is really going on. They dont depend on some fancy statistics or computer programs to dictate what the final outcome will be, and they sure dont like politics. This has to be one of the wettest years on record and yet the basin is dry, it does not take a NIF scientist to figure out that something is extremely scewed. I hunted the basin in dry times and although some of the water didnt make it to a couple areas, there was plenty of water to hunt. Now both Sumps are still dry and so are most of the Basin refuges? This tells me politics are involved, and with the current "blue" leadership of this country and OR/CA, its no wonder they are hiding the truth about why the Basin is not getting water. I still have not seen a red legged frog.........but it has sure prevented a lot of people, myself included, from doing their jobs.........wonder why the train to no where has not had issues with running into the RLF going through that entire swamp of a valley floor?Speckslayer, I posed that question to Dan Malia who posted a link to a story written by a Klamath basin farmer who purported to have knowledge about the spores and spore flushing flows. As near as I can tell the farmer did not provided any supporting evidence.
Those salmon fisherman should be happy now because they are getting ALL of the water that would normally go to the refuge and the salmon numbers will skyrocket ….otherwise water isn’t the driving issue!Sure would have liked to get on the water reports from Salmon fishermen in the Klamath River Trinity River and the Ocean up there this year.
