Allen Hischke: Attention fishermen

To the editor:

There is a plan underway to drain Elkhead Reservoir, poison it and kill every fish in the lake. This plan is coming from the people that have been killing the fish in the Yampa River for years. We as fishermen need to do our best to stop this ridiculous waste of our natural resources, and our recreation.

We need to contact all of our elected officials. Our U.S. senators, U.S. representative, our state senator, state representative, county commissioners, city council the mayor, and the state parks department.

If you have any expectations of being able to go fishing without having to drive hundreds of miles each time you want to go, you need to contact all these people and tell them what a waste this action will be.
