I am disappointed with the apparent lack of outrage from the "conservationists" among us. I guess not enough good fly fishing will be impacted by the decisions.

Jack,

You cannot force us to argue with you...you can try all you want.

I did my best to stimulate activism on this important issue, but I suppose unless I can claim that fly fishing as we know it would come to an end without immediate and decisive action, I stand little chance of motivating the "conservationists" around here.

Jack,
I'm a little surprised also. I've read the article and will be sending a respondence to the DCNR via the link you provided. Thanks.

There hasn't been any signifant changes in the drilling process to lessen the impacted/harm on the surrounding enviroment. So opening it up would go against the very reason the closed the state lands to begin with. Just goes to show you that big $$ trumps logical thinking with our legistors and agencies.

I've watched them drill about 50 of those damn wells around West Newton in the past year, and every single timed it has rained this year the local stream(Sewickley Creek) has looked like choc. milk for a least three days afterward. This happens on a good fishery it would be devasting!!!

Wasn't there an article on this (but in another state) in Trout magazine. Might have been another mag. But they showed a sequence of photos showing how the drilling spread like a rash.

Here's a tip though..if you want me to be on your side...don''t make me go find your argument myself. Astonish me with some piece of info...don't just throw the link down in front of me and expect me to read it. I might, but in this case, I was busy that day. If you had grabbed my attention I might have made a better effort to read it.

Mostly because, A-I didn't know they weren't drilling there now.
B-oh hell its late i'm tired..c'mon Jack,
sell me..tell me why I should be pissed.

I'll leave that job to the conservationists. I am more of an idea man.

It just reminded me of the couple of posts Chaz made last year when he just made statement...we were kind of left ..."ok, yeah, and now what?"

Actually, I provided TWO clickable links-- one to the news article that explained what is going on and the other that would take you to the appropriate site from which you can provide comments. The only thing lacking, as I say, was the apparently neccessary claim that everyone's fly fishing experience might be diminished if the decision goes the wrong way.

It sounds like another "all or nothing" argument. In my opinion there are some state lands that should be off limits no matter how careful the effort. But there are other state lands that could be drilled with minimal impact if done in a careful manor. But the special interests on both sides will line up across the fence and throw stones until one side wins.

What about getting TU behind this? They have the connections, the financing and the network in place to cast their voice far and wide...

TU is involved in this and has been for some time.
