Willful Ignorance Threatens Carmel River Steelhead

Apparently deciding that nature does not know best, a group of fisherman decided this week to open a direct channel through a sandbar at the mouth of the Carmel River in California. “Instead of angling the direction of the channel to slow its current, they cut the breach directly out to sea, creating a swift flow of water that could sweep young steelhead into the ocean.” Chris Counts in the Carmel Pine Cone.(Thanks to reader Sherelyn Campbell for sending this link.)
