The last two fisheries biologists for the Basin, and good friends of mine, told me about those over the last 5 years. I've even seen pictures!

BUT to be sure...

we will have to ask Rong if he has seen any on his species identifying fish finder.

Otherwise, how do we know it isn't part of the grand Obama-TRPA conspiracy!

Depends Brandon.

This is whats known as a mountain out of a pimple. Those are MOST LIKELY ALL bait fish that were released by careless fisherman at the end of a day. Ive seen that maneuver a thousand times. The temps of tahoe arent going to proper any population of warm water fish to any level that would endanger any fish there. The macks are typically DEEP there as will be balls of bait- or the chubs the TRPA seems to be worried for. I can show you graph tapes with massive amounts of said bait. What they did was ruin a very popular fishing spot and a special one, in the keys. End of story. Those fish were there for more decades than ive been alive.

No, this is what's known as someone who doesn't know jack sh#t about sh#t insisting they understand ecology better than those who have spent their lives studying it.

But whatever, Rong isn't in charge of anything (thank god), so he can continue blathering on and nothing will ever come of his uneducated opinion.

I went to a carp fish fry that featured carp (whitefish) caught in the Boise River back in the 70s. Those people knew what they were doing and it was pretty damn good - have not forgotten.

Defending the track record of the TRPA isnt going to get you anywhere.

The WORST thing to ever be let into the basin,,, T>R>P>A......And wessie, ive spent my life studying bass in particular. Good enough to be in the top 40 pro western fisherman for a few years. Good enough to have trilene sponsors.


MOUNTAIN out of a PIMPLE that has been there longer than the TRPA.

And Brandon, there are some cases of invasive fish being REAL problems. However its seldom the case. At Davis lake, they poisoned it numerous times in an effort to get rid of Northern Pike. Now,, the lake was doing GREAT with lots of LARGE healthy trout, and a thriving population of largemouth in the shallows. I had fished it many times, and specifically for northern yet never even saw one. They were infrequent to say the least. BUT because a shocking produced a few, the HAD to be a problem.. Against the wishes of the locals, residents, business folk and sportsman, they went ahead and poisoned the whole shitaroo. TWICE...At Cal tax payers dollars.

STOOOOOOOPUD!

Not so stupid, Ron. They eventually got it right. with community approval. The northern pike in Davis Lake was cleared out in 2007, with thousands of gallons of rotenone in a drawn down lake.

You forgot to mention that. Not surprising considering your goobermint hate.

As far as I know, the LCT is the only threatened native species in LT.

Now, you tell me what "MOST LIKELY" means... hint, it doesn't mean you just pulled it out of your ass because it sounds truthy and supports what you already believe, despite studies that show otherwise.

Those are MOST LIKELY ALL bait fish

Aren't Kokanee salmon an introduced species? No one complaining about those fish.
