Saw and watched this earlier.

Cool how it's not even really about the fish. Then again, is it ever?

Wish Ontario would wake up and rid some of our local waters if these outdated dams.

Ever since the state started floating this idea (and spending millions on studies) it has been right on the front of everyone's radar screens who depend on the rivers as a way of life. Further downstream from the proposed site guys like myself depend not only on the fish but on normal flows of water. This is especially true during the spring summer & fall when we are traveling and running barges on the Susitna. I only have to travel 33 miles on the Su when I go to the cabin and can tell you that it is already challenging enough without any reduction in water levels.

The folks up at Talkeetna are extremely concerned because the river is a big part of their economy there.

If you want to see more articles about Salmon here just type my name 'Ard Stetts' and the word fishing. I have a website and on the blog page there are articles with lots of pictures about Tracking our Kings and Fish Counting. I tried to make them as informative as I could.

As for Dam on Sustina , someone is making tons of $$$ on "Study" only . Also, once $ 80-100 is gone, the idea of spending billions on useless project may never materialize.

Wow. Great story and great photography. Thanks, Ard. It makes me wish I had gone up to fish with you this year. Maybe next year.

I just sent you a message Mike, thought I'd say so in case you don't get a pop up to notify you of it.
