What's Wrong With The Fish In The Big Thompson River?

Anonymous said...

I would like to know what is wrong with the fish in the Big Thompson? I drove up the canyon to my usual spot (Indian Store area) caught only very small trout and very few! Two of the smaller trout had fleshy marks near the tail on the same side which like burns, maybe chemical. (The marks were nothing like what happens in crowded fish hatchers.)

Again what happen to the fish in the Big Thompson. I also like to know what is the black/dark brown on some of the rocks in the stream bed? Some of this black/dark brown substance will rub off on your fingers, yet others rocks this substance seems embedded. Could this be sewer sludge from the new fire house since that seep field is within a 100 ft of the river in violation of the Health Department. Please post or forward my comment - concern to the public official for answers.

Thanks

Should The Speed Limit On Highway 34 Be Raised To 50MPH?

Well there's an arguable question for ya. But it is indeed on the planning tables. A movement is currently underway to raise the speed limit on Highway 34 from the current 40MPH, to 50MPH. What do you think as those living along the road in question? 40MPH does seem ridiculously slow in some spots, but has already angered parents with kids at school bus stops along the road.

It would seem that raising the speed limit to 50MPH would make total sense in the more isolated stretches, but it should remain at 40MPH through residential areas and near any bus stops for school children. Adding back some of the passing zones would also be a great idea as their removal only created frustration, mile long backups and risky illegal passing. Common sense would be the best course to take.
