They need to get out of the Yampa Valley forever.

The City Of Craig should not allow them to drop the lake level. This is one of the last opportunities of tourism here. I would also think that the local tourism office would be all over preventing this destruction.

If the fish killers want the Smallmouth and Pike out of Elkhead then they need to take the limits off that fish and begin a Largemouth stocking program. Largemouth will not live in the Yampa with its cold fast moving shallow water. That to me would be a reasonable way to deal with the situation. Much better than the radical, kill everything that the DOW, meaning, (Destroyers Of Wildlife) want to do.
