    No Water - No Fish - old article on Upper D.

    These are scanned from an old Fly Fisherman magazine, thought some of you Upper D buffs would find it interesting:

    Re: No Water - No Fish - old article on Upper D.

    Any chance that's Bob Jones in the 3rd page picture? Your boat's first owner if it is....but then you already knew that if that's him.

    I entered this fight very briefly on behalf of NJTU when I was a volunteer in council leadership and it's great to see all the groups now working together. I recall TU also getting into the fray with our own plans for releases. These days I leave that fight to the PA, NY and NJ state councils who seem to be working well with FUDR and others. But I do get to work with FUDR and others on overall water quality issues throughout the greater Delaware River basin, something many may not know (the greater efforts to improve water quality, not TU's involvement). William Penn Foundation is spending $10 million annually and encouraging other foundations and federal and state agencies to add to that amount to improve the overall water quality in the river. They helped form 8 watershed "clusters" that work together to protect and restore large swaths of lands within the watershed that includes parts of NY, PA, NJ and DE. That means more flows, protections of critical lands, restoration of degraded channels, planting of riparian buffers, fencing cattle out of streams, removing obsolete dams, stormwater management, septic ordinances, and other facets of improving water quality.

    These are exciting times for the Delaware River, especially if we can gain the needed traction to pass the Delaware River Basin Conservation Act that has strong local support from Congress but needs broader support beyond this 4 state watershed. Of course, NY City will always be the perennial 900 lb. gorilla when it comes to flows, but I think that as Croton comes online and pressure via science mounts against their water hoarding, flows will improve in time. It will never be an easy fight and we will never get everything we want, but there is no reason to hoard water in the way that the city has.

    Thanks Dennis.

    That's a 1977 article which mentioned the organization Catskills Waters.

    And we all have Phil Chase to thank along with others in his group way before DRF and FUDR (approx 1993) were even thought of.and most of us had not even fished the Upper Delaware River.

    BTW. Phil is being honored this Friday at CFCCM. Dinner, drinks and auction. Starts at 5:30pm.

    A great guy.

    See Van Put's excerpt from his book "Trout Fishing in the Catskills"...

    Typo.

    Correction to above post. DRF (Serio) and FUDR (Craig Finley, Hartman, Caucci, Weamer, Coz, etc...almost everybody except Serio) really started in the early 2000's not 1993.

    The drawdown of Cannonsville to less than 20% in the early fall 2002, in my opinion, was one of the main contributors of the activism and renewed parley with NYC DEP which was dormant for most of the 1990's.
