The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) announced on June 25 that it is moving fish out of the Nimbus and American River Fish Hatcheries for the second year in a row as Folsom Lake's cold water pool is rapidly drained by increased Bureau of Reclamation releases into the American below Nimbus Dam.
The agency blamed "a fourth year of extreme drought conditions" for "reducing the cold water supply available," while representatives of fishing and environmental groups point to mismanagement of Folsom Lake and other Central Valley reservoirs during the drought crisis as the key factor behind the evacuations.

How are the "jiggers" skirting the law? Did the FWC listen? Will the FWC make good on its promise to pursue those who've been openly flaunting the law?
