In its letter, CDFW said it stocked many more fish in Bucks Lake, Lake Almanor and Antelope Reservoir than last year. These lakes are accessible by car, foot and boat. The lakes have a total combined surface area of 30,750 acres compared to Gold Lake's 20 surface acres. Gold Lake is accessible only by foot. Orange said that in recent years the number of planted fish was significantly reduced; therefore, to make a claim that the allotments of fish were doubled and tripled would necessitate knowing the baseline count of fish planted over the years. Sheriff Greg Hagwood said it was like comparing apples and oranges to compare stocking fish in Bucks Lake, Lake Almanor and Antelope Reservoir to removing fish from Gold Lake. "It's like my neighbor stealing my lawnmower and giving me a weed eater in return," Hagwood said. Orange said that the project to use gill nets to remove the fish would never be effective. It didn't work in Lake Davis, even though they spent $22 million, he said. "It's like Lake Davis never happened," Orange said. "There's a huge lawsuit rolling through the courts right now." The letter will be drafted and presented to the board for approval before being sent to CDFW in Sacramento. CDFW response Tina Bartlett, the CDFW's North Central Region manager, didn't attend the Aug. 5 meeting. However, she sent an email to Supervisor Lori Simpson after watching the meeting online. Bartlett, who met with Simpson, Supervisor Terry Swofford and County Public Works Director Bob Perreault in Rancho Cordova on July 16, acknowledged the CDFW "could have done a better job communicating with the county" on the project. Bartlett's email addressed several points mentioned in the Aug. 5 meeting. She pledged that, in addition to planting greater numbers of fish in the county, CDFW would work more closely with Plumas County. "I am sincerely committed to better communication with the county about (CDFW) activities in the county," Bartlett wrote. Fish and Game meeting Two days after the supervisors' meeting, CDFW fisheries biologist Kevin Thomas attended the monthly Fish and Game Commission meeting in Quincy along with Supervisor Simpson. The local commission has been critical of the CDFW for not being notified of the trout removal plan until after the decision was made and the project was in place. Commission members reiterated their complaints to Thomas during the two-hour meeting. Commission member Horton continued to question the CDFW's research and statistics regarding the frog. He said he was concerned that other lakes and streams besides Gold Lake would be targeted for fish removal. "The trust factor is nonexistent," Horton said. "It's not going to end (with Gold Lake). Pretty soon you will be evaluating streams. Pretty soon we won't have any fish, and then we won't have any tourism." Thomas said he understood the commission's frustration. But he added the frog is a federally listed species and the CDFW is mandated to try to protect it. Thomas said the fish removal, originally scheduled to begin in June, was postponed until sometime after Labor Day. He said part of the reason for the postponement was to allow for a "cooling off" period. When the removal project does begin, Thomas said wardens would likely be on site to provide protection for the CDFW staff. "We've had threats of physical violence to our folks from residents of Plumas County," Thomas said. "We have to take that seriously." Managing Editor Dan McDonald contributed to this report.
