As a lifelong fisherman of the Central Valley, he's caught his fair share of striped bass. But he's still waiting for the catch of a lifetime.

    Finally, some NoCal's get it. So Cal water users are due that water just as you are due our tax money. It is time to stop these silly mis-guided delays and release the water south. Get over it!!

    " Great piece!When all else fails...blame it on the fish... This Fuller bill is unmasked as yet another thinly-veiled SoCal Delta water grab. Now keep your eyes peeled for the next one- the NeoPeripheral Canal...that proposed 300' WIDE (yes, as wide as a football field is long!)concrete ditch that will divert most of the Sacramento river above Walnut Grove, carry it around and past the Delta and directly into th California Aquaduct pumping station for dispatch to SoCal. The Delta will then become like the salt evaporation ponds in the south Bay. "

    They should include in such a bill that if the Striped Bass is eradicated, and Salmon and Smelt don't return in healthy numbers, the farmers should have to pay to restore the Striped Bass fishery, and give up whatever water to keep the river healthy. See if they'll sign on to that.
