This is what happens when you flush fish down the toilet. No but, seriously? This is news...Giant goldfish live everywhere. I've seen some pretty big goldfish in ponds and marshes. I've also seen huge turtles and other invasive species that are thriving. I used to raise big goldfish in aquaponic systems. They are great fish to use but not really as a food source. Talapia other fish are better but goldfish are really easy to take care of.

Maybe the sushi restaurants around the lake should start serving some of the more edible invasives.

Some of you don't seem to realize the importance of protecting Lake Tahoe... as the LARGEST and CLEANEST source of water for thousands of miles... the largest lake in the Sierra... and uphill of major cities and agricultural areas... like the Central Valley, you know, the area that supplies the country with the majority of fruits and vegetables. It ain't just a fishing spot... it is one of the most important natural resources in the west.

^^^^^ bullshit^^^^^

If you love it so much asshat then pack your sh#t and get your car and your trash and everything that goes with all you retards up there and get the hell out

It's the biggest lie ever and what Tahoe needs is less of you people and more bulldozers and restoration of your removed piles of house.

See Wes for those of that have lived in this area for generations the problem has always been people like you who's show up and never leave. You pretend to care so you can bilk some grant fora check or get a phd in some sort of bullshit associated with preserving the lake and in the end you get very little done other than some bullshit report on how all the cars and sand are polluting the lake.

No sh#t it took you a few hundred K of research to figure out the problem is you and your car and your wood burning stoves and your answer is to put in more infrastructure to catch the dirty runoff you create by just being there.

Save Tahoe by tearing down your houses and leaving.

Tahoe doesn't drain into the central valley last I checked. I should introduce you to a hydrologist friend of mine, he can explain how that sh#t works in layperson's terms!

Golden trout ever been introduced to L Tahoe? Fun to catch. Like a little gold bar that swims.

And the Owens Valley doesn't drain into the LA basin. Nor does the Feather.

All bureaucracies eventually become self-serving and next-to-useless, no matter
their lofty initial goals and mandates.

When will Obama release the photos of his "giant gold-fishing" trip? Why is he using chemtrails to create these biological abominations?

I get a kick out of people telling me which way Lake Tahoe water flows... lolz for sure. As if natural drainage networks mean anything for future water distribution in CA. But can any of you tell me which way the money flows? Hint, lots of federal land being sold to private developers down around Vegas. Lots of money from those sales being pumped into scientific research to keep Tahoe blue. I'm sure when Vegas gets desperate for water they will make us an offer we can't refuse... and if there was any connection to Vegas.

I'm glad TRPA exists. I can't imagine what a shithole this place would have become if development went unchecked since its formation in 1969. I wonder what the cultural and political scene around the Lake was like back then.

Until the end of civilization... cheers!

OMG, you are so insightful. I never realized I was part of the problem. My oh my, what ever will I do now?

The only logical solution seems to be stop studying the natural processes of the place, revert back to that groundbreaking used tire based restoration standards of the 70s, and let the Bay area folks just enjoy their weekend vacation spots in peace.

I'm so glad you people figured out everything that needed to be figured out decades ago. If only the dumb scientists would have just taken your word for it.

As soon as I learn Spanish I will move down to Carson. Thanks Ron.

(Yes, TRPA is a pain in the ass. So are taxes, stop signs, and all those other pesky rools we have to live by. It just isn't fair! I'd rather have a lake full of algae and motor oil than have to deal with their crap!)
