    Hi Future!

    I am relieved! I thought those were dwarf wedge mussels in the picture.

    Hello Jim,
    Unless you were poking around before Pete's nimble fingers erased it, you would have seen that I was not only called a Llama lover (alpacas really but let's not quibble; I mean, I like llamas, too.) but also I was informed that I was STILL a piece of "crap".

    WELL NOW....

    I would NEVER let Dwarf Wedge Mussels get all dried up and hard like that; they're TOO GOOD in a garlic butter sauce over Linguini. These "beans" I'm pretty sure would not taste the same.

    DISCLAIMER: The statement that Dwarf Wedge Mussles are Yummy was an attempt at levity. By no means is it meant to be construed that any bivalve Mollusk of an endangered type has ever been harmed in the due process of my gastrointestinal satisfaction.

    Hi Brachy,

    I thought that the channelizing streams issue was put to bed.

    But, seeing as you brought it up again, you need to get your facts straight.
    The channelization that took place on the upstream border of the Delaware River Club Campground is part of the Delaware River Club Campground. The downstream bank of the channelized stream is in fact part of the Campground property.

    I now do believe that both Al Caucci and manager Jeff White were unaware of the work being done on the DRC property. Seems unbelievable, since much of the rock for the project had been stockpiled at the site for many weeks before the project was started.

    Jim

    Could have been for preventive measures. I also know that before the last flood, Twin Islands Campsite had a stockpile of their own boulders. Unfortunately, they waited to long to move them into place and now they have nothing but land. Also, (off topic) the Twin Islands Campsite is up for sale now.

    Re: USGS study draft plan

    Jim,

    I appreciate your feedback. Out of curiosity, has your volunteering (non contractual engagement - as described in the on-going discussion in this thread) helped DRBC, DEC and DOI NPS in regards to more consistent flows? Has the dwarf mussel concerns been addressed by the various bodies? I appreciate your insight.

    Sincerely,

    Dennis Watson

    Re: USGS study draft plan

    Hi D. W.

    An interesting historical read to say the least!!!

    I believe that my work and the work with my friend Peter K. had a profound positive impact on the Delaware flows and releases.

    Would I do it again, probably not, it was ten years of my life that I could have fished a lot more!!!

    Read some other posts and I will explain some of the positive and negative impacts we have seen over the years.

    By the way, I see you never did answer the compelling question about who indicted me as getting paid by the DRBC. Statute of limitations probably now protects you from any sort of libel case!!!! lol

    As stated by me ten year ago, I will always strive to answer respectful questions!!

    Jim

    Re: USGS study draft plan

    Jim,

    The program official from Department of Interior in Reston, VA informed me via a phone call that you were hired to run the software. Obviously, this conversation was held over 8 years ago, just before my trip to Tennessee to close a deal with the Department of Navy for a contract to support personnel recruitment. So, to answer your question, I only stated what a DOI program official disclosed to me. Do you still have a contract to run this model?

    This reminds me of a sign in a shop window near the entrance: "If you break it, you own it..."

    Sincerely,

    Re: USGS study draft plan

    John,

    Would love to meet you for a beer in the future to work it out. Is Lydia's still in business near Winterdale, PA?

    Let me know if your are available to put a face with the Future Fanatic moniker that has such depth and insight.

    Your 'intellect' always draws a good chuckle for casual observers on this web site.

    Sincerely,

    Dennis
