Selfish fly fishers are trying to monopolize a stream in order to create a special fly fishing place? They want to reestablish the Paiute cutthroat trout into Silver King Creek and remove the non-native trout with poisons.
Selfish bug advocates believe the efforts to restore the native Paiute trout to the Silver King Creek will result in the death of caddis and stoneflies, because rotenone has to be used to remove existing non-native trout species (Sate intro’d & predatory to the Paiute cutthroat trout).
Yes, bug nuts vs. trout nuts and the story is fascinating. Anti-toxin, pro-invertebrates have spent considerable sums pushing their points to the State and Federal Courts and have won repeated stays for the caddis, stoneflies and other shall I dare say lesser invertebrates? The State trying to carry out the plan to reintroduce the Paiute trout have failed to consider the invertebrates as they prepare to kill off existing trout (that is odd enough, non-native or not) in order to restore the Paiute cutthroat trout.
