Putah Creek Trout reports that Didymo or Rock Snot is currently found in the Bear River, Middle Fork of the American, Lower American, Little Truckee, Prosser Creek and other sierra waters. Didymo can destroy the habitat of the river by suffocating all of the invertebrates and covering the stream bottom. Anglers using these and other streams should take precautions to prevent transfer of this species to other waters. Remember to clean, drain and dry your boats and equipment after using these streams. We see our local waters as being clean but this report should sound an alarm that we are in danger of alien species invasion.

Rob Grasso and Jason Julienne team up to discuss AIS issues at the state and federal level for our local area. Rob is an Eldorado National Forest Fish and Aquatic Biologist, while Jason is an Environmental Scientist and Regional Coordinator for AIS with the California Department of Fish and Game. They will discuss the local risk and threats to our area waters and current monitoring strategies for AIS. They will also share important information for anglers and boaters. Additionaly, Berni Bahro, Chapter Vice President, will update us on TU's National AIS survey results and plans for TU California.

The meeting will be at 7:00 PM in the Forest Service Conference Room at the rear of their building on Briw Road just off Forni Road.
