Its time to get your invasive species

It's that time of year again that we have the true pleasure to donate more money to an enforcement agency to monitor a problem that the whitewater community does not affect in a significant way.

New last year: You Must have your Idaho sticker in hand to be in compliance. ie. Your receipt is not a valid.

Oregon also wants your money

I'm always so have to stimulate to the governments economy this time of year even though despite taking additional taxes out I will get the pleasure to pay even more. Hi ho, Hi ho, it off to work cause I owe....

JW Powells' Revenge?

"A widespread infestation in the Colorado River watershed would be devastating, Reclamation officials say, because the survival of the arid region is tied to the elaborate system of hydroelectric dams, canals and reservoirs.

"Yet the mussels are spreading rapidly in the Lower Colorado watershed. Young mussels float in the water column and get carried by the water currents downstream, while adults attach themselves to the bottoms of boats and can be transported miles away.

""We see major colonization on our equipment, and we don't see this becoming less and less of a problem, but rather more and more of a problem," said Leonard Willett, Reclamation's Lower Colorado River quagga mussel coordinator."

I am awaiting the day that WE will be declared an invasive species. Will we be taxed or shot?

Don't forget about Wyoming. Hard shell kayaks need stickers.

I don't know too many rafts that are dirty enough to carry an invasive species. I hate paying the fee just because the whole idea is crap.

You will be shot. We know how you hate taxes.

GC outfitters are required to hot power wash all boats that take out at Pearce Ferry before they go back around to Lee's Ferry. Is it helping? I really don't know but those mussels are tenacious. This probably costs more than a permit and sticker which will do little to stem the problem.

What problem? I thought these little suckers were part of the solution.

I too think the issue is rather moot. The little buggers will continue to spread even if we were to shutdown all water craft on all rivers. It's just a matter of time. The question really is, do you think it's important to battle against invasive species? Kind of cuts to the core of conservation.
