    Yea, while trying to get stuff done in the outdoors I’ve come to find that when you get tourism involved things start happening. Maybe because here in our part of the state adventure tourism is getting a big push both locally and politically. Not complaining mind you. Folks here are desperate to rejuvenate our economy.

    Pros- remove a man made structure to restore a natural river level. Dams are destructive to many species. Often only benefiting human progress.

    cons - none other then pissing of some ignorant humans apparently.

    Won't have any impact on flooding. They are navigation dams not flood control.

    Will impact slack water species. Largemouth, crappie, catfish to an extent, especially blues.

    Pretty damn rich to have someone who is bringing up the positive impact to spawning salmon on the Green River to be calling anyone ignorant.

    Stopped by Nolin tailwater this afternoon to see about putting the boat in one morning after work. Well, congracongratudamnlations to those spawning salmon and yak hipsters. Putting a boat in there at normal flow now is a thing of the past, as there is a riffle about 20 yards below the ramp all the way across about 10"deep. Talked to 2 kayak fishermen that said there were spots they had to pull their yaks across and the majority of the rest was 2-4' deep with the odd deep hole being maybe six.

    Canceled a Kayak trip because water level was so low above Brownsville.

    A ruined fisheries. Small pools are easy pickings for the River Otter, they are the ultimate Fishermen, night and day 24/7 three hundred and sixty-five days a year! Good luck catching any sizable or numbers of fish out of there.

    That stretch of Green River is nothing but a creek.
