Move over bears and wolves... steelhead in the Los Angeles River?

Recommended Posts

Lot of talk about conservation here lately. 

I saw a recent article online by national geographic but it was behind a wall. So found this one,  little older but saying the same thing. 

Interesting idea.

It's LA so it will be bumper to bumper trout mouth to tail fin 24/7 and take 5x as long as it should to get there.

Then when they get to the headwaters, they'll spend hours telling each other what routes they took to get there.

Those smolt are hard to keep off the line at times out here.  

It's a very rare site here. It's only the second time I've ever seen one, and I spend a lot of time in the boonies. Of course very few of the watercourses in SoCal are perennial, and the larger ones that are have dams.

If you’ve ever seen the LA River you wouldn’t say that. I’m not sure you can even call it a river. It’s more a concrete drainage channel that is a trash dumping ground. 

 

It is right now.  Which is why they are looking at spending billions to rectify it.  Which is very cool.

You won’t stop the derelicts from using it as a dumping ground and a place to live. It’s the LA River, not the Boise River.

What makes it more of a river than the Boise River?
