Keep the pressure on. If you attend a public meeting, ask what is being considered in the way of trout removal. These public meetings do not volunteer information unless you engage one of the insiders in discussion and ask.

Latest unpleasant rumor I've heard is removal very near the Lee's Ferry reach IS being considered. Supposedly the large amount of smallish fish and successful recent spawns makes an argument for those who don't like trout in the river to say it is OK to remove trout because the anglers would rather have fewer, larger trout anyway. I say that's not a good argument. Populations fluctuate naturally, not every year is good for spawning. Today's small trout are tomorrow's large ones.
