i would like to know the dows plan with colorado. first. why shock all our fish in moffat county and then leave the fish in the river by steamboat. the fish in that area are not native fish. the fish they are trying to save run/ran the whole river. from what ive read the numbers on endangered fish are not going up and there just killing fish and wasting money. WHY? second, i would like to know why we have outta control deer and elk numbers here. maybe hunters dont push them outta the woods like the old timers did to claim a compleat hunt? but i have a feeling the dow has sliped and let the natural predetors decline way to much. also i applied for a antelope permit and was declined for a hunt here home with bountaful antelope and got a permit for Whitewater Co. where i and most locals to that area cant remember the last time they seen a antelope. hummm. just wondering if i am the only one that thinks the dow needs to look and work with other states and get a nice even balance back in colorado….. shame on you dow!

Hello grannyrett;The reason that the US Dept of Fish and Wildlife, the DOW and Colorado State University keep shocking the fish in the river is because they are getting money from the government to do it. There is no other reason for this. As you said the squawfish numbers have not increased. This program started back in the mid 1980's, when it was told to me that this was to be a 10 year plan. At that time I was also told that the sqawfish were “holding thier own”. The only reason this has continued is because people are getting thier palms greased with our tax dollars. If the people in this area don't wake up and build the Juniper Cross dam so we can have the water for this area. One of these days either the Denver Water Board, or the State of California will build it and take all the water, and we will have nothing.
