Public Commenting On Suction Dredge Mining Ends March 5th.

Allright peeps, let your voice be heard and write a letter to DFG concerning their proposed suction dregding regulations.  Why is this important to us as anglers?  Well if you don’t know what suction dredging is here is a link…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1qwdzQ4fzI.  As you can see this practice interferes with the streambed, which we all know is the place all those bugs near and dear to us, and trout, live.

DFG is proposing a season for suction dredging from September 1st through September 30th on all Lake Tahoe Tributaries, including the Truckee River and its tributaries.  There has been a moratorium on suction dredging since 2009, the moratorium will end in June of 2016.  The TRTU is asking for a ban on Lake Tahoe tribs, and the mainstem of the Truckee and its tribs.  You can help out by also writing a letter.

Here is a link for DFG with all relevant information to the proposed regulations, as well as a physical address and an email address where you can voice your concerns.

http://www.dfg.ca.gov/suctiondredge/….p.s. If you are going to submit a comment via email, DFG wants a specific subject in the subject line.  You can find that info out with the above link.

Thank You,

The Trout Bums
