Ron, man the fuk up and email that cute little researcher. Ask HER why they are making the claims they are making. Maybe the news will interview you in a piece that exposes the cover up... Goldfish Gate. You can tell them how you know everything about everything from timber management to aquatic ecology and you learned it all using your species identifying fish finder.

Or... you can just sit there and act like you already know everything and everyone else is a dipsh#t... it works for me.

The KEYS has always been a special fishing spot.

No it hasn't. It didn't even exit until the 60s. Half a century is nowhere near ALWAYS.


Invasive fish, such as the goldfish, are gathered and removed from the water. Ngai said the program will look to filet invasive fish and donate them to local food banks.

Did Ngai claim she "discovered" anything? Or did the news? Are you passing judgement on a researcher you have never met based on her research you will never read? Then applying that to every other researcher out there? Sounds kinda hedgey to me.

Face it, if you knew half the sh#t you claim to know you would be making a positive contribution to the world. Instead you are stuffing dead things and blaming all the worlds problems on whatever source you disagree with.

A group of researchers from Davis, the University of Nevada at Reno, and the fish and wildlife departments of both California and Nevada were the first to study the presence of goldfish in Lake Tahoe, beginning an annual survey in 2006.

They knew they were there before the study, otherwise they would not have developed a study to look at the impacts. Do you already know what impacts they have on the native fish, algae, water quality, etc? If so, contact her... I'm sure she could find some money in her budget for useful information.

Here's one... no need to read the whole thing or try to understand, just read the title.

You know, I should have realized that this would turn into a pissing match between Ron and Wes.

Anything involving nature in that area causes you two to argue. You're both very stubborn.

Carry on.

Yeah, it sucks always having to set that old goat straight. But hey, I learned some things about guns, so I figure I should return the favor.

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.

Never mind the LACK of snow nowdays.

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."

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.
