Ell Lake is dead, Sidley lake is dead, other lakes on the way. When I bring up this issue to fellow fishermen most give me "it's a cycle, pray for more moisture, they'll eventually come back, etc." I really hope they are correct but honestly don't see it that way. If you look at the dire water shortages around the glob it becomes apparent (at least to me) that time is running out quickly to reverse global warming. We have had two years in a row of 100+percent snow pack and still no change. I am not a hydrologist or a climatologist. That said, I don't think 10 years of 100% snow pack would make a difference in an ever-decreasing water table. Since Dept. of Fish/Wildlife, local fish Biologist, fly clubs, Nature conservancy, TU, and others have ignored my "the sky is falling" rants, I am inclined to either give up or try something drastic to have at least a few good years of fishing before my age and health say "done". My plan is to raise enough money to have water air dropped into these lakes. I realize that the summer's relentless heat in the NCW would take it's toll but perhaps there would be some fishing for at least awhile. Yes, this is a desperate measure but people ignoring the inevitable and doing nothing is worse. Hell, I have not seen "Fly Fishing in Yemen" yet but look forward to the chance. Without going totally "ape shit", tell me your thoughts.
