You took the last one?!?!?!

I wonder if their decline has anything to do with the 150 foot drop in lake level over the last few decades. Nah, probably has something to do with Obama and poor management from TRPA.

Good thing we aren't studying the impacts of upstream water allocation. Stoopid government thinking they know how to balance the water needs of society and the environment. Really the best action for conservation is no action at all.

yeah wes,, like they DIDNT YEARS ago.. Never mind the LACK of snow nowdays.
Never mind there is a Paiute Res right upstream that HASNT had a die off.

Never mind that is the end of that river, therefore will always be the first to go in drying times.
Never mind Yerington pumps GALLONS into that river daily through the Ft Churchill power plant and Mason Valley Hatchery and pond systems from ground water pumps.

Want the rest of the story or just go ahead with your attempt at condescending quirks.



edit: Wilbeer,,MOST of my trout are released.. I prefer warm waters, like crappie, bluegill, yellow perch small mouth and largemouth in that order.
Ive kept a few to barbq,, fo sho.. NOTHING like fresh brookies sizzling away over a small fire -smoke wafting lazily into yur nose,, the scent of garlic and cooking fish...





edit: Hey wes,, from the CAL Fishing regs:


(a) In Donner, Fallen Leaf and Tahoe lakes Lahontan redside, tui chub, Tahoe sucker, Lahontan speckled dace, mountain sucker and Paiute sculpin may be used only in the same lake where taken.



Nev:
In the waters of Lake Tahoe and its
tributaries located in Carson City, Douglas and
Washoe Counties: only Lahontan redside
(shiner), tui chub, Tahoe sucker, mountain sucker, piaute sculpin, speckled dace may be used as bait, and only when taken from tributaries or waters lake Tahoe.

Here's a little story about the trpa. I've been a primary home owner for 17 years...gotta great deal, otherwise I would be on the street. I live in a low lying area, aspens, willows abound. Obviously, but to a lesser degree than the keys, the entire area should not been developed. Anyway, since I wanted to protect my property I built french drain to steer any water from my house, in addition to avoid having urban runoff from invading my property, and ruining my foundation. I Effectively installed a mandated (by the TRPA at amuch latter date) a B.M.P. also Aka Best Management Practice waaaaay before it was even an acronym. I applied for a permit to pave my driveway... no deal "that's considered coverage". Several years latter it's a mandated law to have my driveway paved to allieviate the problem of suspended solids from ruining the clarity of the lake. The TRPA doesn't hastle EdgeWood or Cal Trans the real culprits that are ruining the lake, maybe cuz they have alot of money. Maybe after a few millon generations some of the warm water species that live in the keys and other shallow micro climates may make some actual inroads to extending their range. Hopefully The whiners as well as the last of our retched species will have been long gone.

Damn you TRPA! They've even altered the data, making it look like 1924-1978 were even drier!



Never mind that is the end of that river, therefore will always be the first to go in drying times.

Is that so? The first to go? Really? Because people who study hydrology know drought susceptibility is usually inversely correlated with contributing area. Sorry... "the bigger the watershed area, the less susceptible to drought." A terminal lake has the largest contributing area in the basin... by definition. It has to do with the fact that water flows down hill, draining high elevations first and pooling in lower elevations. I'm not saying it won't dry out first, I'm just saying the fact that it is at the end of the river is NOT the reason.

Want the rest of the story...

nah, I'm not much for fairy tales.


The TRPA doesn't hastle EdgeWood or Cal Trans the real culprits

Yes they do... and yes they are.

Oh, it sucks, trust me. In fact, it sucks even worse to visit up here. Trust me. Everyone is way better off staying in the bay area.


TRPA is stopping us from doing what we want to do on our property... but they are also stopping our neighbors from expanding their house.

It is funny when you follow your post with "Hopefully The whiners as well as the last of our retched species will have been long gone."

I'm in grad school, of course I'm miserable. Especially when I'm in front of a computer. IRL I'm one of the nicest, most pleasant people I know.

Ndot uses water soluble oils on their roads. They use salt/sand and salt brines on their roads. The sewer vent between parking and the Cave used to GAG ya if it was warm.. I imagine it still does.

Then take eight million people pissing in it every summer along the shallows dumping their left overs and dead beers, and left over bait fish..

And the fact its warming up like everything else and yeah cycle time is coming close. (Close being who knows how many years). Tahoe does, but it aint sayin.

Dr mechrist, has a ring to it.

Ron you seem ok too, even though you write the stupidest f*#king things from time to time. Like mocking someone's higher education... for example.

Dingus always cracks me up!

I've made it a point to balance my edumukashun with job experience. I have 12 years of ed and 8 years of professional experience. By the time I drop dead in 4 years I should be even stephen. Getting a job will be beautiful.

Well,,ok,, let me relate a short story.. A grad school masters on Forestry was assigned to the Timber dept to do some studies of art regens we had done the previous year.
She comes in and tells me the plantation we planted just last spring has visible dwarf mistletoe. I said really? R U SURE? Yep-- saw it plainly!

So i explain to the GRAD student that it takes a min of 2 years for any visible signs of that infection. She says but i SAW IT! She was determined, and even told me how i WASNT as highly educated as herself and she resented me questioning her about it.
I said,, ooooook fine,, let us go see this not even 1 yr old plantation with mistletoe. We get there, having to listen to her explain how and why she is more highly educated for over an hour. She scurries over and points to the ground --SEE! I TOLD YOU! I look down to see what is probably a fifteen year old banzai jeffrey that was indeed infested with mistletoe, yet looked NOTHING like the two year old one stem plantaion trees that have been in the ground less than a year., nor did it have the scalp she insisted was there around the tree.
I then explained that it wasnt even in the border of the plantation and was a stunted banzai jeffrey in the neighborhood of fifteen. She ARGUED THE AGE with me..True story.Said it couldnt be that old. I sighed,, shrugged my shoulders, went over to my rig, and brought back my cruiser axe- and with a chop, started counting rings with a magnifier. I was off a wee,, it was 20. The GOOD part of the story was we had a nice quiet ride back...
