Uh HUH... The latest clarity study revealed today that Tahoe is clearer TODAY,, than in has been in 22 years.. Nearly seventy five feet of clarity..

But,,, but,,,, all these gold fishies and bassies poopin in da lake are supposed to be so phosphorus as to make the clarity decline through added algae growth..(yet they EAT algae)


22 years,, the best clarity now. Hmmmmmmm( scratches head)


But but,,,what does THAT mean??? (picks nose)


Could it be,, that the number 22 is also around the time they claim these fish became a problem????

Could it be,, these nare-do-well fishies are actually HELPING the clarity of Tahoe?

Cuz since they been around, its the BEST CLARITY in 22 years..


co-incidence?

Thanks bassies, bluegills and carps.. Thanks crawdadies - keep up the good work..;-)

And of course, with added clarity comes added temperature- through sun penetration = movement of fish, and minnows- or changes in patterns.


edit: And isnt all these studies, attempting to "blame" clarity problems in Tahoe on a few wandering warm water species sounding even more ridiculous at this juncture? Isnt the idea of eradicating the keys of its treasured fish a bit questionable at this juncture?

They planted grass carp at Mason valley years ago to fight the encroachment of aquatic veggies..WHA??


Yes,, Tahoe now be clearer than the last 22 years . Any studies with more than a single brain cell should really wonder about the fact that these invasive additions may just be a help, not a hindrance.

Thank you SCIENCE for giving us an alternative to people who believe in species identifying fish finders.

Your lack of understanding is astounding.

Fish finders are NOT species identifying as such .. Only fisherman can do the id- either by experience ( as to how the fish are aligned with structure, or by simply FISHING to see what they catch). Things considered when looking for fish are temperatures, thermoclines, structure and clarity as well as time of year .(spawn -post spawn,pre-spawn, summer or winter.) Fisherman know what their quarry likes, and when. Those put together narrow a search any any given body of water. Hope that explains a thing or two wes.

Ive sat over fish constantly in my signal,, dropped a jig right down to them as i watched if fall on the graph, and caught that fish. I knew what it was before i lowered the jig, due to how and where it was holding, by experience of fifty years of chasing fish.


edit: Wes,, that IS the news and what those reports are saying. It was suggested by the young Dr that these should be eradicated upon sight.
They arent part of ANY problem,, not the bait fish, not the clarity or any thing else. Thank the TRPA for a LARGE WASTE of yur tax dollars, again...

I've had the buckeftful of crawdads before in crawdad country. I guess if you've got nothing better to do they're alright. I'm not really into spending a bunch of time cracking bug shells open though.

I haven't had any out of Lake Biggler yet. Out in Texas. I guess if I eat 'em in Louisiana and don't like 'em then, I can call it good.

edit: Note,, crawdads when COOKED like lobsters often turn out the very same. I dont like the boiler jobs myself.

My friend who suffers from Yellow Fever nearly died when I told him Tahoe was being invaded by Asia clams.
