Keep in mind that the European brown trout did not survive in the EVR below the C&R area. Rainbow trout are reproducing in the C&R area. If the Gilas can reproduce below the C&R area that would be fine with me.

UPDATE added 4-28-2020

The water being pumped, starting on 4-7-2020, from CC Cragin is more turbid (silty) than the clearer looking water flowing down from above the pumphouse. For Gila trout to have a chance at reproduction, the increased turbidity of CC Cragin water should not be pumped into the upper EVR prior to the Gilas spawning which most likely could be through the month of April.
