I am looking forward to some live Alaskan Salmon. All I can get in the stores is farm raised, and it's not worth it.
FWIW, if you are concerned about adding another "pipeline" to our current underground systems, please check the maps of the gazillion of miles that are already transporting oil and gas and water to every imaginable corner of the USA. I suspect the track record of these operations is very reliable, but then if you want to be fed the usual propaganda from the Hollywood left, I reckon anyone can be brain-washed.
Wait! How dare you guys insinuate that corporate profit should take a back seat to our supply of safe, fresh, unpolluted, un GMO'd food! If you act on your beliefs you will eat the toxic fish and defend the poisoners. My favorite is the frozen fish in the big colorful package with a huge picture of Old Glory waving on the front. The brand is "American Pride". In the smallest of letters at the very bottom, disguised by the seam in the bag is the line: Product of China
Still a lot of ice cold crystal clear streams in Idaho with may be a little cow poop mixed in. I don't eat store bought fish for that exact reason. although agriculture can be be rough on water quality. I have drank water right out of the mountain side at about 10000 feet so cold it gave me an ice cream head ache. Unfortunately I'll never get that high again.Quote:
You mean you can't find a fresh water stream in Idaho that produces edible fish? Hellsbells, I have a friend that lives there that always had glowing reports about the quality of those fish. He admitted the walleyes we catch through the ice on the Oahe in Sodak are the very best, however. If you like to eat rainbow and brown trout, pulled out of rapidly running, ice-cold creeks, you can find lots of those in the Black Hills, and even in the Rapid City city limits. I enjoy the pan-sized rainbows...about 8-10"...but couple of meals seem to be all I want. Whereas, I can eat walley twice a week, and not get tired of it.
I get that high every day Pete! My office is at 10,200'!
That's a pretty rare living and working environment CarolQuote:

What is the elevation of the valley floor. Taos sounds beautiful and no cheat grass I'll bet. (.
Pete, the house we live in is at about 7,500'. You are right, no cheat grass, but lots of sage brush and cacti of every type. And ZERO training water unless you want to count the Rio Grande! Our favorite training place is a meadow at 10,000 feet, about 50 acres. Rolling Alpine terrain, nice grass, flowers and evergreens, and just occasionally a pond or two before it all drains back down the mountains. Only pollutants in the mountain streams are bear and deer poop!
Bon, where the San Juan enters NM is where they have the two hunt tests each year. One the end of April and the other in October. But no FT water anywhere that I can find. Even the few ponds that Breck found with the Satellite pictures failed to provide any opportunity. Oh well, I guess me and my dogs are on the wagon for a while. Pretty dry county;)
