When the DOW was trying to "reclaim" the Yampa for the sucker fish, where did they place smallies?

I don't know about the smallies but they dump a bunch of northerns into the craig town ponds at loudy simpson park.

they put most if not all the smallmouth in elkhead reservoir. Very crafty of them because the lake is being mostly drained with only conservation pool left so a lot of them will die. The USFWS and DOW truly hate warmwater fish. They also are euthanizing some of the northerns and puting a few others in lakes like rio blanco lake.

You guys know the dow shocked almost all the Pike in Spinney and just threw them up on the bank a couple of years ago. Just mounds of 40 inch class northern piled up on top of each other. They must have trucked them off somewhere but I was told they killed them all. :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

You know we need to start suing the DOW for their atrocities against our fisheries and our rights.
As for yampa smallies, they will never have any impact on them, they are too numerous. I am quick though to go out of my way to be a jerk to the socialist pigs I see shocking fish in the rivers. They deserve all the names they get.

Socialist pigs? 
Yes I'm sorry they are. Socialism by definition is government control over aspects of our lives that they shouldn't have it. They do these removals despite the fact that at least 90% of anglers and non anglers are against them. And politicians we elect uphold them. We need to recall those politicians, as we are a democratic republic and to have government doing things without the consent of the majority is not allowable. Just being elected isn't license to do your own thing. In fact you have more responsibility to uphold the majority once elected.
Plus with Colorado, many of the most powerful officials and policy makers are appointed and not elected. And they are pretty much nothing but special interest pushers.

I've also heard that Elkhead would be closed for 2 years? What all repairs are they doing, and if this is the case & they're draining the lake, WHY would they dump the smallies there? It just really makes one think! Ice, I'm not quite sure about "socialists" but you've hit the nail square on the head about this issue.
