I think most know while I have lots of opinions, I don’t venture out unless consequences of keeping silent are just too great. That’s why I’m asking you to take a moment and read the info on the included link and sign a petition-for and in behalf of both black bass and striped bass as now reside in the California Delta. Check it out here, please.
I know humankind has pretty much lost its way when it comes to “fixing” the world. No, neither largemouth bass nor stripers were here when Adam and Eve got kicked out of the Garden of Eden, but the two game fish species have been here since the 1800’s and no one is the worse for wear because of it.
For sportfishermen, black bass are a joy. For those who delight in their table benefits, striped bass are perhaps even a greater joy. And they have been for more than a century. So what kind of thinking would desire to try and recreate a world of the 1700’s all over again? However, even non-fishermen can look at the situation, and with a clear head, use the existing means to get California government to act in the behalf of more than it’s usual constituents: greed and/or acclamation.

Well put. Have been signing petitions to save the Delta for a couple of year now. Keep it up folks.
