I'm always bummed when my schedule keeps me from helping with the twice yearly electroshocking survey on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Reservoir.
Ryan Mosley, Flaming Gorge Project Leader for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, sent in this report from the survey. The video was taken several years ago. but is reflective of the process.
I've included some pictures from my Green River "office window" the last couple of nights. Pictured on the front of the boat doing the netting (hard labor) are Molly Ryan of the US Forest Service and Kevin Clegg from Flaming Gorge Resort. Just another example of cooperative effort to get the job done. It was the Green River's version of Deadliest Catch (minus the ending pay-out) as Mother Nature threw everything she had at us including wind, pouring rain, and thunder and lightning. Fortunately we finished with nothing more than a few bumps and bruises.<
