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.
