Well, if you have paid attention to the news lately, you read about the influx of water into the Grand Canyon. Thanks to the Federal Government, you can now enjoy class 5 rapids...just kidding.
The release of 300,000 gallons of water/second into the Grand Canyon is a Federal experiment to determine if nutrients and sandbars can be rehabilitated by opening dams and flooding rivers. If I were a hungry fish, I'd be excited.
In the Housatonic River in Connecticut, it has been stated that the fish are fatter and happier as a result of a similar influx of water, however natural (i.e., flooding). Hard to believe the influx of H20 would be good for fishing, though. I mean, if the "floods" brings added nutrients, plankton, and other plant life, why would a fish want to nibble a gnatty fly?
Let's have a vote, folks - see the SURVEY to the left.
