Rafting friends particularly should be very concerned about this!! Completing the Jordan Cove Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) export terminal would be the equivalent in greenhouse gas emissions of building 15 new coal plants. The associated Pacific Connector Pipeline has the potential to be just as devastating -- impacting waterways in southern Oregon 485 times, including the Rogue, Umpqua, Coos, and Klamath Rivers. ...

In the pre-development Central Valley, winter-spring flooding once created a vast mosaic of productive wetland habitats that teemed with fish and wildlife. A major driver of this wildlife abundance was terrestrial carbon made available to aquatic food webs when floodplains were inundated. Nineteenth... ... See more

“Removing four outdated dams on the Klamath River has long been viewed as a win for fish and a win for the environment, and increasingly it appears it will be a win for irrigated agriculture in the Klamath Basin. Recent studies [see page 16 of the linked document] indicate that removing the dams will also substantially reduce fish disease ‘hot spots’ in the Klamath River, thus potentially removing the biological need for dilution flows in the spring and summer. That means more water left in Upper Klamath Lake—which means water resources for tribal and agricultural interests. It is time to take down the dams and let the Klamath run free.” – U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon, shown here meeting with KRRC CEO Mark Bransom in Washington, D.C. http://www.klamathrenewal.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Klamath-C.-Shasta-Infection-in-Salmonids_Peer_Review_Summary_Report-Final-1-3.pdf ...

Have winter storms put a damper on your fishing lately? Let’s be thankful we have plenty of water and the fish are able to successfully do their thing. More water equals more fish, which is never a bad thing. In the meantime, have a look at this great video produced by Michael Wier of California Trout featuring Shane Anderson of North Fork Studios, Jason Hartwick and Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia. These are great examples of guys who really care about the fish and the resources and treat every fish like the special experience it is. Full video: https://vimeo.com/76890682 ... See more

I almost didn't drive into the park today as I am not a big fan of crowds, and the clouds were swirling around Midpines this afternoon (clouds can prevent the natural firefall from happening). So glad I did. This was the most spectacular natural #firefall I have seen in my 20 years in Yosemite National Park. 100% nature-a couple of weeks every February if conditions are right, the light from the setting sun hits Horsetail Fall just right to produce this “firefall.” #yosemitefirefall #yosemite #horsetailfall ...
