Having just gotten back from the Ferry, I thought it would be a good time to read all 6 pages of this post. I have always wondered why there don't seem to be very big fish there.

Excellent write up Terry,

You said:

"It dawned on me that the river was suddenly healthy and it had to be a result of the large water inflow into Lake Powell the previous year and the reason that our fishery had been doing so poorly for the past several years was the fact that there was hardly any water inflow into Lake Powell (compounded by the erratic and extreme experimental Trout Suppression Flows); the lake and river WAS STARVING FOR NUTRIENTS!!!"

This is an interesting point. If this is true, I can only imagine what harm will be caused when zebra muscles take over lake Powell like they have from Mead down stream. If they aren't there yet, its only a matter of time.
