Thousands of salmon have vanished from the Mokelumne River.

What's worse: Experts aren't sure what is wrong - and there's a growing fear that the fish are teetering on the edge of a catastrophic collapse.

    maybe the giant fish eating pumps they use to give our water too so-cal might have a part in this?

    Is it possible these fish are being poached? There exists a severe problem with poaching other game such as deer and bear. Seen any Hmong fishermen along the Moke recently? I'm basing these comments on information from a 30 year Fish & Game game warden who has knowledge of this disturbing multi-year trend. There was recent news from Sacramento regarding a Hmong deer poaching ring, and geese being abducted from Land Park, near a large Hmong population. Not to paint all, but the problem given small population focuses on this group. Facts, not political correctness.
