Draining of Folsom Lake forces Nimbus, American River Hatchery evacuations

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.

"If this legislation goes through, you can kiss the fly fishing industry in The Bahamas goodbye"

Nevin Knowles, operator of the Long Island Bonefishing Lodge, told Guardian Business that although he supports the introduction of measured permit fees for the creation of a conservation fund to protect the industry's longevity, the bureaucratic hurdles visitors would have to clear in order to legally fish in Bahamian waters ultimately only stand to "corrode" The Bahamas international reputation as a premier bonefishing destination.
