Colorado Fish Kill on The North Fork South Platte!

Meyers: No easy solution for fish kill
By Charlie MeyersThe Denver Post

The locations are miles apart, yet very close in their cause and concern. Whether the angling community and Denver Water can gain some solutions to the problems that cause trout to die on the North Fork of the South Platte River upstream from Bailey, and on South Boulder Creek where it flows from Gross Reservoir, remains to be seen. Because it is recent and involves lots of money and very large fish, the North Fork situation has attracted the most and immediate attention. Further, it features a sequel even more enduring and dramatic.

From Oct. 28 to Nov. 7, Denver Water squelched the flow through the Roberts Tunnel, which delivers water from Dillon Reservoir through the Continental Divide and ultimately to the taps of the Denver metro.

This is not good news, let's just hope it's not something like whirling disease again.

I hear you, it seems like there's more and more of this hapening lately. It's never good for the trout population and definite carries over an impact for years to come.
