June sucker problem solved -- Willard anglers won't like it
I just read this article and thought that I would be the first to pass it on:

"Willard Bay June sucker project 4/1/2009


The JSURP and the DRW announce an exciting change in management in the effort to preserve the native June sucker. For several years, the study commission has been searching for a suitable shallow water fishery to serve as a host for a reserve population for June suckers. We are proud to announce that our studies have borne fruit and the perfect lake has been found, Willard Bay. Due to continued problems with the dike structure, it is felt that the impoundment will be unsuitable for a continued warmwater sportfish fishery. Therefore, it will be partially drained, chemically treated, and then restocked with June suckers, who will thrive in the shallow, yet clean water. Removal of the fishing pressure will eliminate the constant conflicts with waterskiers and wake boarders. The entire project is expected to take place over the next 5 years, but should begin in 2010 with partial drainage of the lake.

The DRW issued this comment from Peter Cushing. We know that some will be disappointed in this change in Willard management, but we feel that it is for the greater good. The Feds are also requiring it. We absolutely know that we can eliminate the carp in Willard. That is something we can't say about Utah lake. We also plan to replace the Willard wiper fishery by introducing wipers into Cutler reservoir and Settlement Canyon res. in Tooele county. These two impoundments have abundant chub and other prey species that should feed the wipers well. We are also considering wipers in Strawberry to put a further dent in the chubs there.

A public comment period is allowed for 60 days.

Unbelieveable!

I've E-mailed already to Drew, Karpowitz and Huntsman about this. They better be ready for a good screaming at when they open their mail. Next it's a letter to Hatch, Bennett, Bishop and Matheson.

Kent, I hope you don't mind that I referrenced your thread and gave them your PI so that they can directly contact my source about this matter.

Bad joke is right. The "proud to announce" is untypical of anything published from the DWR, let alone the DRW. DRW??

This had better be a bad April fools joke Mad If they think the stream access issue had fisherman up in arms, wait till this $hit hits the fan !!!!!!
The sooner the damn June suckers are completly extinct in Utah the better off all our fisheries will be.
There not any better than carp.
Am I gulible? Maybe. But I wouldn't put it past the state to do something along these lines.
Just reading that got my blood boiling. Crappy way to start out wed. morning Frown

Man that was a good one! My blood pressure went off the chart for about 20 seconds. Heart rate still hasn't gone back to normal, it's okay, coffee is brewing and I need it a little higher until I get the coffee in me.

Good one, Kent! Happy April Fools Day to you, too. You should have subtitled it- BFTSA for BFT Suckers Anonymous.

LMFAO! Had me there totally for a minute. That was a nice one alright........articulately constructed and nuanced too! I completely ignored how you referred to them as the DRW. LOL. Starting to get angry there for a bit haha. Even peter cushing wasn't obvious at first.....the issue itself was sooooooooo compelling. That is an awesome one!

Here is the fish they want to stock at Willard Bay according to a Utah DWR report. I wouldn't eat one of these though.
According to the report they eat plankton but by the looks of it.

Breaking news: although I made the Willard April Fools post I was not the author. Barry (aka doggonefishin) wrote the article. The original text provided by Barry included:

"A public comment period is allowed for 60 days. Interested parties can call 1-800-555-XXXX." However, the Xs were replaced with four numbers. Just before posting it I thought that I would give the 800 number a call (CPAs are cautious by nature). Wow am I glad that I didn't post that telephone number -- I reached a hard-core porno recording!BlushBlushBlush I assume had I stayed on the line that I would have been invited to provide a credit card number to invest in some type of porno. Barry insists that the number was not intentional (he actually used some logic in how he arrived at the number he created) but he is an angler so one can never be sure.Wink If anyone is in need of a porno telephone number I suggest that you PM Barry.Cool

Blush I was hoping you wouldn't share the part about the (not so) bogus phone number. I was pretty embarrassed about that. (still amBlush)

So guys, if this April fools joke caused you to dump your morning beverage on your keyboard, you have some small consolation that the perp unwittingly got his right back at him.Wink

Happy April fools day all.
