Subby: DO NOT EAT

TFA: Algae only harms animals with gills.

So either subby thinks humans are gilled animals, or subby is an illiterate dipshiat.

Officials are not sure what triggered the toxicity and salinity problem in the Salt River, which triggered the algae growth. Paxon said storms in the mountains could have washed ash and silt from the Wallow Fire into Black River to the White River, which turns into the Salt River.

Paxon said the river was nearly 15 degrees cooler than Roosevelt Lake, and the algae problem subsides before entering the reservoir.


Anyone remember a certain Sylvia Allen claiming the forests were stealing Arizona's water? Heh.

[kindly]

By the time the fish have died, and floated on the surface for a while, they will be too rotten to eat. Plus, algal blooms create toxins which can infiltrate the fishes' bodies, thus poisoning the fish.

It's sad when people must be told everything in such black-and-white terms.

Back when Florida USED to have real, cold winters, it wasn't unusual for a hard freeze to stun the fish in the local river and kill many. Naturally, nearly everyone with a boat would pile out there and scoop up the fish. So many would be killed by the freeze and stunned ones scooped up that it would deplete the population for months.

Now, on the VERY RARE times we have a winter actually cold enough to produce a hard freeze, it's illegal to go and scoop up the fish. The marine patrol goes out in force.

I wouldn't risk eating the dead ones, even if killed by the cold and floating in nearly freezing water for hours, but they make magnificent fertilizer for gardens. (In the spring, take a dead fish, bury it in your garden with a seed on top and watch the plant grow like mad. Old Indian trick.)

Of course, you'd have to keep all of those dead fish in the freezer until then.

Fishermen I knew used to go after the game fish. They'd cruse slowly along, ignoring the mass of dead or nearly dead fish until they spotted stunned Trout or Red Snapper and scoop them up. They could get some pretty big fish that way.

Some bait shop owners would take advantage to scoop up Mullet, Shiners and other 'secondary' fish to stock their supplies of frozen bait for free.

Doing any of that these days can get you a major ticket.

Afterwards, you get to 'enjoy' the scent of rotting fish for a few weeks. The city doesn't like to spend much money in hauling the rotting ones off. (Except around the wealthy, gated riverside communities.)

It used to get so cold, that ice would form in the shallows of the brackish river, any container holding water in yards would freeze over and those who didn't protect their pipes or let their water run at a trickle into their yard would face broken pipes and well pumps.

It hasn't gotten that cold around here in decades.

Oldie but a goodie.

Wet Dream
by Kip Adadda

It was the 41st of April, being a quadruple leap year.
I was driving through downtown Atlantis.
My Barracuda was in the shop, so I was in a rented Stingray, and it was overheating.
I pulled off into a Shell station.
They said I'd blown a seal.
I said, "Fix the damn thing and leave my private life out of it, okay pal?"

While they were doing that I walked over to a place called "The Oyster Bar" -- a real dive.
But I knew the owner -- he used to play for the Dolphins.
I said "Hi, Gil!" You have to yell, he's hard of herring.
Gil was also down on his luck.
Fact is, he was barely keeping his head below water.

I bellied up to the sandbar.
He poured me the usual -- Rusty snail, hold the grunnion, shaken, not stirred.
With a peanut-butter and jellyfish sandwich on the side -- heavy on the mako.
I slipped him a fin - on porpoise.
I was feelin' good. I even dropped a sand dollar in the box for Jerry's squids.
For the halibut.

Well, the place was crowded.
We were packed in like sardines.
They were all there to listen to the big band sounds of Tommy Dorsal.
What sole.
Tommy was rockin' the place with a very popular tuna, Salmon-chanted evening,
And the stage was surrounded by screaming groupers -- Probably there to see the bass player.
One of them was this cute little yellowtail, and she was giving me the eye.
So I figured this was my chance for a little fun.
You know, piece of pisces.
But she said things I just couldn't fathom.
She was too deep. Seemed to be under a lot of pressure.
Boy, could she drink. She drank like a- She drank a lot.

I said "What's your sign?" She said, "Aquarium."
I said, "Great! Let's get tanked!"
I invited her up to my place for a little midnight bait.
I said, "C'mon, baby, it'll only take a few minnows."
She threw me that same old line, "Not tonight. I've got a haddock."

And she wasn't kidding either, cause in came the biggest, meanest looking haddock I'd ever seen come down the pike.
He was covered with mussels.
He came over to me, he said "Listen, shrimp, don't you come trollin' around here."
What a crab. This guy was steamed. I could see the anchor in his eyes.
I turned to him, I said "A-balone. You're just bein' shellfish."

Well, I knew there was going to be trouble, and so did Gil, cause he was already on the phone to the cods.
The haddock hits me with a sucker punch.
I catch him with a left hook. He eels over.
It was a fluke, but there he was, lyin' on the deck, flat as a mackerel. Kelpless.
I said, "Forget the cods, Gil, this guy's gonna need a sturgeon."

Well, the yellowtail was impressed with the way I landed her boyfriend.
She came over to me, she said "Hey, big boy, you're really a game fish. What's your name?"
I said, "Marlin."

Well, from then on, we had a whale of a time. I took her to dinner. I took her to dance.
I bought her a bouquet of flounders. And then I went home with her.
And what did I get for my trouble?
A case of the clams.

Ah, memories of tubing on the Salt River; beer, womenz, doing nothing but floating and getting one helluva sunburn.

Most of Arizona's rivers are in essence canals. Dammed at both ends. There are very few free-flowing rivers left in Arizona. It really sucks what we did to Arizona's riparian habitat.

The Colorado canal is flushed regularly with high water discharges from dams to wash out pest plants. Sad substitute for natural flooding and natural vegetation.

And people call it a wilderness. Buh hah hah.
