Scott Willoughby from the Denver Post has written about another great river conservation/rehabilitation success story here in Colorado.  Here’s a sound bite:

“Perhaps the most remarkable thing about stream restoration is its immediacy. Take the pollution out of the river and fish can survive. Add some structure, dig out a few pools, shore up eroding banks, and the fish move into the improved habitat almost instantaneously. It happened last spring on the South Platte at Carson Nature Center. And it happened on the Arkansas last week.”

In the course of ~4 hours I had three great opportunities to hook and land fish… and I blew all three. 

Here’s what went wrong.
