Brian,

Don't you just love the way a lot of our legislators tell us they are concerned about fish and wildlife and then they go introduce legislation to remove protection of the rivers. I suppose they think fish can survive just fine without spawning grounds. Oh yeah, we must keep reminding ourselves that the fish are doing just fine and that dredging rivers, removing gravel from rivers, allowing river channels to be moved by heavy equipment, and "fortifying river banks" with dikes or rip-rap is actually good for fish.
