Pasadena Casting Club Conservation Committee member Steve Kuchenski and I talked about this at the Faire yesterday in Glendale, and he was nice enough to share this image with readers. Several times, places I’ve loved to fish on the LA have either been disrupted by Army Corps bulldozers, or swept away in high flows, due to winter rains and a lack of actual riverbed structure. Anybody remember the great bass disappearance from a few years back?
See you on the river, Jim Burns

Yeah, I noticed the significant drop in bass population in the river. The strength of the river around flood season pretty much guarantees each run will be reset. Maybe the grading will help that in the long term?
Right, Ken, I think one of the goals should be a sustainable riverbed, that invites fish and wildlife (including us!), and not a flood control channel. Thanks for posting. — Jim
