It’s that time of year again where we get a chance to fish some of the best tail water in the nation. Of course, I am referring to the San Juan River below Navajo Dam in New Mexico.
Once again this year we will be staying at FISHEADS San Juan River Lodge. All the information you will need
about our location is at: http://www.fisheadsofthesanjuan.com
The date of the trip is May 22 thru 25, 2015. Arrival is on the 21st and dinner will be served that night at around 7pm. The guided drift boat fishing will be on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th. We’ll departure on the 25th after breakfast that morning. All meals (including shore lunches), fishing equipment, flys and lodging are included in the price of $1120 for the whole trip. The only additional cost to you will be your transportation there and back (most of us drive, but you can fly into Durango or Farmington and rent a car) plus tips for the guides.
Congressman David Valadao has authored H.R. 5781 which was introduced on the House Floor last night (December 2, 2014). A first reading of the bill reveals that it does little to "solve water shortages" resulting from the drought, but it does alter how environmental protection statutes are implemented and enforced for the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary.
It also contains language to expedite Federal review of storage projects (within a 30 day window) which could have a negative impact on the availability of flows into the Delta and that could be used according to a recent UC Davis report to provide additional water for Governor Brown's proposed twin Delta tunnels. It also allows for expedited water transfers which puts the health of our Northern California rivers and groundwater supplies at stake, especially during times of extended drought.
