Because the Underground believes in whipping dead horses, burying them, then unburying them again so they can be whipped some more, I’m posting an informative five-minute screencast by CalTrout’s often tongue-tied Conservation Director Curtis Knight, who explains the nuances of the proposed McCloud flow regime using actual data in the form of hydrographs.

CalTrout already posted an article about the McCloud’s proposed flows — and this is clearly biology tech of the pocket protector, taped glasses type — but it’s also fairly clear and succinct, and when it’s over, you’ll realize the McCloud’s future is looking pretty good.

There are still emails flying out there predicting as much as 4x increases in spring flows and a river that’s wholly unfishable well into July, and it’s rubbish.

See for yourself.
