The Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks should open the Yellowstone River immediately.  I fear they are trying to set a precedent for future human restrictions.  This parasite is doing the river good by cleaning out the overpopulation of white fish which compete against our prized trout populations.

 

It’s happened before in other rivers around the country.  They all survived.  Mother Nature always steps in and corrects a problem that we seem to create.  Let nature take its course and let the people who enjoy and rely on the river get back to using it.  With concentrations of this garbage fish as high as 15,000 per mile this parasite will help the mighty Yellowstone, not hurt it........
