Comment Here for Lees Ferry Action Alert due 1/5/18!



The National Park Service is conducting an Expanded Non-Native Aquatic Species Management Plan Environmental Assessment (EA) that includes elements having a potentially damaging impact on the Lees Ferry trout fishery and the business and guide services dependent on that fishery. Submitting your comments is the only way to protect and support the fishery. Comments are due by 1/5/18. Please share this with all your angling friends!

The EA proposes electrofishing mechanical removal of brown trout in Lees Ferry/ Glen Canyon with "long-term, intensive and repeated electrofishing." Collateral damage to the rainbow trout fishery from mechanical removal on the proposed massive scale will be unavoidable. Rainbow trout not removed at the time of brown trout removal will be intensely and repeatedly shocked as the electrofishing process progresses along the river and continues over recurring lengthy periods of time. Surviving rainbow trout, while recovering, would be unfishable for extended periods. This action would have a catastrophic impact on the quality of the Lee Ferry trout fishery, the welfare of the local community, and the regional economic benefits tied to the fishery. We strongly oppose this action and urge you to do the same by commenting to the National Park Service that you oppose any mechanical removal of brown trout at Lees Ferry PERIOD!

A lot more information and a link to comment HERE

Or skip straight to the NPS Comment page and tell them NO Mechanical Removal Of Brown Trout at Lees Ferry, Period! HERE
