Wow, that makes perfect sense!
They complain that unatural flows and temperature from the dam releases are what caused the so called "problem" with native fish and now they mess with nature even more by making a high flows when the browns spawn in the fall which is totally not natural. I think we play God way too much in this world. We as a human race have made many terrible mistakes on the habitat but some are better left adapting to a knew environment. I really don't think it would be smart to try and kill eveyone's cats and dogs in Salt Lake because the native and very endangered Utah Tarantula needs to be revived. Glenn Canyon dam is here to stay that is a fact we must face. I believe in saving natural strains but in this case who will even know that these have returned and what difference will it really make if no one utilizes or even sees them for that matter. And who is to say that they will make a come back with the now colder water. And last of all if they are going to destroy what wild trout there are down there. If they raise the water below Lee's ferry that means it will be raised at the same time along the Lee's ferry stretch as well. No more wild fish. It is one of the great places you can go and catch a trout on a dry in January and not have to deal with iced guides and 5 layers of clothing. Some times they need to face the facts and make the best of it. I love native Cutthroat but you don't see me campaigning to kill everything in Utah Lake and reintroduce them. It will never work and we have a great warm water fishery at Utah Lake why ruin a great thing trying to accomplish an idealistic and impossible goal.
Let'em live so all may enjoy!
