Tony: (Everybody) I watch a TV show called "Inspector America" and this guy was 
a former bridge inspector etc and he goes all over the country, inspecting the 
countries infrastructure, including the water situations like floods, draughts 
etc. And last week's program talked about this very thing. They built the 
Hoover dam in 1931 I think it was, and created Lake Mead, which gives most of 
the South West, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas etc, it's water supply for 90% 
of their water. Yet, since 1999 (partly because of population explosions in the 
area, and partly cause of draughts) the water level in Lake Mead had DROPPED 
get this 130 FEET. And it's still dropping. And he had this  water dept big wig 
woman talking about the problem and they were talking about how we have well 
over 600 MILES of the Alaskan oil pipeline, and THOUSANDS of miles of Natural 
gas lines running from Texas all over the US. So, they were saying "why don't 
we built water lines, to take water from where there is too much (like where 
you are, and all through the mid west) and pipe it over and into Lake Mead etc, 
to where there is a shortage of water?? Makes sense to me. Ppl say "well, that 
cost too much". But look at what the cost to this country will be when probably 
20-50 MILLION ppl who rely on water (and electrical power cause of the huge 
turbines that run there) from Lake Mead and other lakes in that part of the 
country, are suddenly out of water, and they all move "back east". What a mess 
we'd have on our hands, and we'd better fix the problem while we can, and I 
think the idea of "diverting water from flooded area, to those in draught 
areas" makes perfect sense. Then, later, if Lake mead ever flooded, and the 
Midwest was in a draught, the water could just be reversed. Chuck

          Well it looks like trout fishing in Arkansas is going to be sad this 
year again, to much water.

          But, I do have a 12 day trip planned for Eagle Nest, NM in August, 
any suggestion are welcome
          as to water, flies, or technique.
