State of the Trout
Reel Deal Anglers has been a proud member/supporter of TU for the past 25 years and we feel this comprehensive report on the State of the Trout is a hugely important issue.
Recently, I attended a interpretive report on Wyoming’s Water Strategy from Mr. Nephi Cole, who works for Gov. Matt Mead. Here’s a quote from Gov. Mead that summarizes his position on Wyoming’s Water. “Water is Wyoming’s most important natural resource. It is critically important not only to Wyoming but to our country. Wyoming is a headwaters state. The water that begins in our mountains travels down our nation’s great rivers. Water that starts here makes its way to the Pacific Northwest, the Gulf of California, and the Gulf of Mexico. From statehood, we have recognized the need to protect and develop our water.
We all must, as a society, realize that water is the most critical resource and as the population continues to grow this will become even more vital to the future generations. Recently, the government passed the new Clean Water Rule, which seems to reason for the definition of “beneficial use.”
Regardless of your position on any of these issues, it’s paramount that we all protect our most valuable resource, H2O.
