oil spill gulf
i have friends in the gulf being affected by the oil spill. i am an environmental scientist and ichthyologist/ornithologist. in past spills, particularly the recent one in san francisco bay. we observed that every bird recovered alive their were at least 1,000 birds unrecovered or found dead. no one has really talked about this in the gulf disaster. wildlife will be affected for decades to come. i would like any data that can be supplied by first hand information concerning this matter.
as to fishing in clear lake, it is excellent at present with many bass being caught. i have also had some great catches on the coast of lingcod, rockfish and sea trout, using my fly rod with sinking line over the kelp beds.
