Hopefully you have had a year full of fishing adventures and are taking advantage of the fantastic fall!
Today, I am writing for your help in the support of trout and the beautiful places they live.
Unfortunately, the “Million Pipeline” has reared its ugly head once again. This terrible project won’t die and has moved into a public comment period. My fishing buddy, Lance Egan, wrote a great piece about it on his FF blog and provides some details about this project.
It affects the Green River in Utah and Wyoming by diverting water to the Colorado front range. This would be a devastating blow to the landscape of this beautiful area. I know for some of you this may be a long way from where you fish but it is a very special place that I hope you can help us save.
Take a few minutes to learn about it and then make your opinion a part of the proceedings by following the instructions below. It is very easy and only takes a minute or two!!
